A bright comedy
4 July 2003 | by psteierSee all my reviews

A broad parody of the Romeo and Juliet story. Set in a 19'th century Alpine village, Romeo and Juliet love each other but they can't marry because their families are feuding. Unlike Shakespeare, there's a happy ending.

Plenty of low humor. Nice sets and costumes. The best costumes were for scenes at a costume ball.
