This review is from: Romeo and Juliet (1968) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I first saw this film when I was 7 and has since remained one of my favourites. Although dated, in my opinion this is a classic, beautifully shot and very well directed. This, in my opinion, is the best on screen portrayal of Shakespere's tragic play and would definitely recommend it over the version with Leo di Caprio and Clare Danes, which to me is a poor Hollywood-esque attempt at a 'West Side Story' modernisation of a great play.
