Shakespeare was clearly made for the Kiwi camp ground. No West Side Story musical this one. More of the movie to the sound track. Romeo and Juliet are the pretty that make the rest of the Montagues and Capulets oh so ugly. Young love and impulsiveness and tragedy for the video screen. Absorbing and watchable because Tim van Dammen is true to those characters we love to hate. Romeo and Juliet: a love song with a cool car.
