Brilliantly made movie by the great Franko Zeffirelli
on 7 April 2017
Brilliantly made movie by the great Franco Zeffirelli. I remember it from my schooldays, when my class was taken to the cinema to see it. I remember being slightly shocked (at the tender age of 13) by the naked body of Romeo with his love Juliet, though it was very well acted and directed, nothing sleezy about this version of the great Will Shakespeare's wonderful work. As with many films, there was a fair amount of fighting, which possibly went on a bit too long, but seeing it again all these years later, I believe it was justified. I was left in tears at the end, and it felt as though time had stood still, the emotion was still as strong as back in the 60s when I first saw it. Worth every penny!
