The best Romeo & Juliet, Aug 31 2010
In the world of music covers, movie remakes and quality dulling, it is a treat to find something like this. When Zeffirelli became a director to watch because of his use of age correct actors and actresses, this movie became one of my most endearing love stories. I was a young man when I fell in love with Juliet (Olivia Hussey) and this many years later, she is still the sweetest girl I have ever seen. Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers tragedy can still bring a tear to the eye of the most jaded traveller. Highly recommended.
