Franco Zeffili’s Film Version of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is a play about two young adults that fall in love with each
other. The only thing that is holding these tow lovers back is the feuding
between the two families.
“Was Franco Zeffili’s film version of the play “Romeo and Juliet an improvement
over Shakespeares play?” Yes, Franco Zeffelli’s film was an improvement over
Shakespeares play because he changed the dialogue a little, he made the location
better, and the Tybalt and Romeo duel was action packed.
I really liked the real elaborate scenery in the movie. I liked all the nice
looking buildings. I also liked the scenery because it was real open and right
in the center of the city.
Franco Zeffelli really added a lot to the great battle scene between Romeo and
Tybalt. In the actual play the fight sounded stupid and it seemed like it
barely lasted a minute. In the movie the fight scene was great because it was a
long fierce fight.
Franco Zeffelli’s film was a great improvement over Shakespeares play. He made
it better by taking out some of the boring dialogue. He changed the scenery
around a lot. The fight scene was a lot better also. Over all the film was
twice as good as the play.
