Romeo and Juliet is a film adaptation of William Shakespeare's romantic tragedy of the same name directed by Carlo Carlei. Romeo is the son of the Montague family and is an able swordsman. Juliet is the daughter of the Capulet household, almost 14 years old. The two young teens fall in love but their respective families are violently feuding and try to keep them apart, leading to their tragic deaths. Filming started on February 3, in Italy. The film was shot at the grotto Sacro Speco in Subiaco and in Mantua.
Romeo, Romeo. Turning what should be a hanky-required tragedy into a headache-inducing travesty is no small feat. The Bard's swoony saga of star-crossed teen lovers from opposing feuding families has proved durable no matter what the treatment. But it becomes abundantly clear from the very first scene of a needless bout of jousting that Italian director Carlo Carlei —responsible for 's "Fluke," featuring Matthew Modine as a man reincarnated as a dog—is in way over his head, from several misguided casting choices to an intrusive score that sounds like Renaissance faire elevator music. You would think, however, that Julian Fellowes , the British scribe behind "Downton Abbey" who won a screenwriting Oscar for 's " Gosford Park ," is capable of condensing Shakespeare's work with some degree of discernment.
