Zeffirelli's 1968 Romeo and Juliet remains a masterful cinematic exploration of
Shakespeare's sensuous love story that ends in heartbreak. I saw it then and
again tonight. Not to be be missed.

A truly wonderful adaptation. Zefferelli directs it well & has a perfect cast. The Nino Rota score is so beautiful. Highly recommended.
