Interesting landscape for Romeo and Juliet story
25 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Interesting directing, watchable cinematography and natural habitat...

How could they capture all the movie?

All characters are non-actor or actress but they are very grateful. Climate, local people, real characters, amazing volcano scenes, shortly cast overcame all of the different problems, victoriously.

In my opinion, movie' all the say is "alleged" uncivilized society must had be wild. On the contrary, movie's every second said that they are more civilized against us. I love meeting scenes.
