Baz Luhrmann's dazzling and unconventional adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic love story is spellbinding. Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes portray Romeo and Juliet, the youthful star-crossed lovers of the past. But the setting has been moved from its Elizabethan origins to the futuristic urban backdrop of Verona beach.

This brilliant and contemporary retelling of the world's most tragic love affair makes this wildly inventive Romeo & Juliet unforgettable.

 enormously powerful

very overwhelming from start till the end. and in between a great traditional love story told in an untraditional way: very flashy, very kitschy, very up tempo but with the original textphrases... witch produces an ingeneous result.
once you get used to the original phrasing, and together with the very strong soundrack (wich stands perfectly well on its one on cd!) this movie carries on like a rollercoaster.
be my guest: watch it and you'll love it.

 FAB FILM!!!

im studying Romeo and Juliett for my GCSE and it really helped but i think the fact that leonardo di caprio was in it made me watch it a couple of extra times :) but great film to watch with friends and family or on your own. Some really good scenes in it especially the car scene when Tybalt dies :( youve just got to buy it!!

 Shakespeare for the MTV generation.

This Version of the classic Shakespeare story is like a firecracker
exploding in your face. It oozes a certain arrogance and energy that is not
normally associated with "The Most Romantic Story ever told"
Just watched this again after 13 years on DVD., and it still easily holds up.
The acting was top notch, showing Di Caprio's potential before he became a Superstar.
I didn't understand a lot of the Shakepearean language,
But that did not matter as it was all very obvious, and this was very much a Visual Spectacle.
Also the Soundtrack was Spot on, especially the track "Kissing You" by Des're.

 Great GCSE coursework help
