Storyline

ROME AND JULIET follows the romantic journey and soul mating of two women caught in a web of forbidden love. Juliet (a conservative pre-school teacher) is a bride to be who befriends and hires Rome (a liberated businesswoman) as her wedding planner. As they go through the preparations, Rome and Juliet develop a deep friendship, a soulful connection and a love that is physically consummated. But conflicts arise when Marc, the groom who is a young politician, shockingly discovers the ongoing relationship between the two women. Angered and humiliated, Marc calls off the wedding and a huge scandal explodes, leaving Rome and Juliet in a state of emotional turmoil. Not long after, Juliet is driven away from home by her mother, gets fired from work and later becomes a victim of a road mishap that puts her in a coma. But in the end, despite all the trials and hurdles Rome and Juliet's unconventional love for each other remains strong and intense. Written by cinema one

Rome: Perhaps nothing can make a woman smile more sweetly than to be surprised with the gift of flowers. Flowers also have the power to evoke emotions. To heal, to appease, to surprise. And to feel real love.

American Filipina viewpoint...Just go watch it :)
24 September 2012 | by (New York State) – See all my reviews

I liked it. Go watch it with some queer (allies included) friends that are mature enough to want to learn about another culture and some Tagalog (Philippines national language)

I'm coming from a lens of a Filipina-American POV. I'm proud that they put this movie out and it would be helpful to know the culture to have a better appreciation of this movie.

The title hints to the pop culture of the PI. Rome and Juliet?! When I saw that title I already was skeptical because that is typical of the filipino culture to do a play of words in the title. It's rather funny. And, cheesy!

Also, it is obvious part of the story line was copied from the movie Imagine Me and You. But don't expect a comedy. This is filipino drama at a well acted level. Story line was quite choppy. There are elements to it that I could see that the director wanted to express an artistic semi-indie-esque feel like voice overs of Juliet reading poetry and lots of emo music.

I quite by accident discovered this movie on youtube. The subtitles are at par and I don't understand why they created subtitles when they speak English. Annoying.

How I appreciate this movie is I get to see the American / Spanish / catholic influences that impact the main character's growth and confusion about this unexpected new found love. Watching Rome consult a nun was a surprise to me and again made me think about my filipino heritage.

The theme (which I've noticed has been a recurring theme in the past 20 years) in the LGBT community: Two best friends happen to fall in love. This happened to me so again another reason I could connect to it.

If you're looking for steamy sex scenes, there really aren't any compared to today's standard. Expect a made for t.v. lesbian movie.

If you're looking to chill and see a love story with a happy ending (however drawn out) then go grab a loved one, some Halo-Halo (a filipino dessert) and watch it. I really did like the acting between Mylene Dizon and Andrea Del Rosario. They were sweet and tender. And Mylene is just eye candy.
