Rare LaserDisc Movie Review Romeo and Juliet Released: 1968 Runtime: 138 Minutes Color Country: USA Language: English Genre: Drama Movie Review for LaserDisc: Director Franco Zeffirelli's 1968 version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet was touted at the time of its release (successfully, if the box-office receipts are any indication), as something of a "youth trip" movie. This is because Zeffirelli broke the long-standing tradition of casting over-aged, sometimes grey-haired players in the title roles. Seventeen-year-old Leonard Whiting plays Romeo, with 15-year-old Olivia Hussey as Juliet. The youthfulness and inexperience of the leading players works beautifully in the more passionate sequences (some of these breaking further ground by being played in the nude). Among the younger players are Michael York as Tybalt and John McEnery as Mercutio. The duel between Romeo and Tybalt starts out as a harmless, frat-boy exchange of insults, then escalates into tragedy before any of the participants are fully aware of what has happened. Photographed by Pasqualino DeSantis on various locations in Italy, Romeo and Juliet was one of the most profitable film adaptations of Shakespeare ever produced. Its most lasting legacy is its popular main theme music, composed by Nino Rota. --- Hal Erickson The unrepentant romanticism of Franco Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet works beautifully in translating William Shakespeare's tragic drama to the silver screen. The lyrical score of Academy Award-winner Nino Rota (The Godfather) and the voluptuous and magnificent period costumes by Danilo Donati combine with the sensuous and dusty cinematography of Pasqualino De Santis to evoke the Italian renaissance setting perfectly. Ever the traditionalist, Zefferelli took a consistently conventional approach to the production, with his only really daring move coming in the casting. For the first time in film, two teenage actors portray Shakespeare's tragic protagonists, and the employment of a cast rife with unknowns results in the film being a triumph of spirit and enthusiasm over technique. Simply put, neither Olivia Hussey as Juliet, nor Leonard Whiting as Romeo, are very skilled actors: Shakespeare's words are often garbled, and the actors' intonations are occasionally inappropriate. Still, Zefferelli manages to overcome his young star's lapses (their considerable physical charms help as well), not to mention the coincidence-filled and hole-ridden plot, to offer a film of great beauty, abundant energy, and deep sorrow. Furthermore, the desperate romanticism of the titular characters' final actions taps into adolescent society's deeply rooted rebelliousness that was finding popular expression at the time. Nominated for four Academy Awards (including Best Director and Best Picture), Romeo and Juliet was the winner of two, for Cinematography and Costume Design. --- Dan Jardine Cast: Olivia Hussey - Juliet Leonard Whiting - Romeo Milo O'Shea - Friar Laurence Michael York - Tybalt John McEnery - Mercutio Pat Heywood - The Nurse Natasha Parry - Lady Capulet Robert Stephens - Prince Of Verona Keith Skinner - Balthazar Richard Warwick - Gregory Dyson Lovell - Sampson Ugo Barbone - Abraham Bruce Robinson - Benvolio Paul Hardwick - Lord Capulet Antonio Pierfederici - Lord Montague Esmeralda Ruspoli - Lady Montague Roberto Bisacco - Count Paris Roy Holder - Peter Aldo Miranda - Friar John Dario Tanzini - Page to Tybalt Roberto Antonelli Carlo Palmucci Murray Head - The Chorus Laurence Olivier - Narrator of Prologue Crew: Franco Zeffirelli - Director / Screenwriter Lord John Brabourne - Producer Anthony Havelock-Allan - Producer Franco Brusati - Screenwriter Masolino D'Amico - Screenwriter William Shakespeare - Play Author Pasqualino De Santis - Cinematographer Henry Mancini - Songwriter Nino Rota - Composer (Music Score) Eugen Walter - Songwriter Reginald Mills - Editor Lorenzo Mongiardino - Production Designer Luciano Puccini - Art Director Richard Goodwin - Associate Producer Christine Edzard - Set Designer Danilo Donati - Costume Designer Awards: Best Director (nom) Franco Zeffirelli 1968 Directors Guild of America Best Director (nom) 1968 Golden Globe Best Foreign Film - English Language (win) 1968 Golden Globe Best Original Score (nom) Nino Rota 1968 Golden Globe New Star of the Year - Female (win) Olivia Hussey 1968 Golden Globe New Star of the Year - Male (win) Leonard Whiting 1968 Golden Globe Best Director (win) Franco Zeffirelli 1968 National Board of Review Best Picture (nom) 1968 National Board of Review Thanks for Visiting DaDon's Rare LaserDiscs!
