In this animated version of Shakespeare's classic play, Romeo and Juliet's fateful lives are changed forever after they marry each other in a whirlwind of romance against the wishes of their feuding families.
it is not the most inspired adaptation of the play. in fact, in many moments, the question remains if the film is real an adaption . because it has so many innovation than your knowledge about the Shakespeare play is attacked from many parts. the film seems be a version "ad usum delphini" but in the second hour this good intention is compromised. for the simple motif because all lost its sense and a love story becomes a peace manifesto. the virtues - the Medieval atmosphere, Ken Duken as a credible Mercutio, Sandra Ceccarelli as reasonable lady Capulet and, not the last, Alessandra Mastronardi as a decent Juliet, one of advantages being the Mediteranean look. the sins - all the rest. almost each young actors could be a better Romeo. and the sad fact is the final question of viewer - why a new adaptation ?
