Rome, Juliet, and the Lamp – A Movie Review
The Movie “Romeo And Juliet” is a romantic comedy directed by Alfred Hitchcock. With James Stewart as the villainous Dr. Isaac Lanzarotto, and Audrey Hepburn as Juliette, this picture is quite enjoyable to watch. This is one of the best films of all time.
In 1937, James Stewart took over the starring role from Alan Aldrich at the center of the film. In this film, he would play Dr. Robinson, an American physician who travels to Paris to see therise of Juliette. But his motives are then questioned when he falls in love with the daughter of an Italian count.
This film has been hailed as one of the greatest comedies ever. It stars Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. At the beginning of the film, we notice that both men are drunk. They land at the beach at the same time and fall in love with each other just minutes after their encounter. But it takes until the end of the film for them to realize what exactly had happened to them on that day.
In terms of the actual plot of the film, it centers on the dynamic between two lovers. Juliette (Hepburn) is an incredibly flirtatious, beautiful woman who has the hots for every man that crosses her path. She is the type of woman that would go out of her way to ensure that she catches her man in the act. However, her desire to be sought after would cause her to have an affair with Robinson, a seemingly perfect man.
The dynamic between the two characters would quickly become romantic between them. In one scene, it would even lead to them falling in love with one another. However, in the next, they both know that it would be better for them if they would just remain friends.
Throughout the film, the two would experience feelings of longing for one another, but they would always put these to the side in order to pursue their own interests. Juliet tries to seduce Robinson in order to win him over, but he responds by telling her that he would think about what she means to him first. This scene then drives home the notion that love should not be rushed, no matter how hard someone wants it. It should be given the same importance that it deserves.
The direction of the film is top-notch. No element of the movie is left untouched. Every element seems to fit together smoothly, from the performances, to the story, to the special effects, and the visual elements. The music also adds to the overall feel of the film.
Overall, this is a must-see film. With strong performances and a fantastic story, it becomes very clear why audiences love Roman Coppola’s film. Even the audience itself would recommend this to other people. Don’t miss out on this one!
The two lovers in the movie eventually fall in love with each other, though they’re only just beginning to enjoy their romantic time together. Early in the film, Juliette (aviera schaffer) seduces Robinson (gary sopranino), but later she decides that her affections have gone too far and has made her want to end their relationship. When Roman offers to help take care of her daughter instead, she tells him that she still loves him. He accepts her offer, but then informs her that he still loves Juliette.
As the relationship progresses, the two constantly find themselves falling in love with each other. Eventually, they decide to marry each other and have children. However, Roman and Juliette’s marriage falls apart soon after, when Roman finds love again in Paris. Juliette does not want to leave Paris and her friends at first, but eventually she comes to realize that she wants to stay with them.
Regardless of whether or not you think the two in the Rome, Juliet movie are meant to be a classic romantic comedy, or a classy period piece. Both play out exactly how you would expect a movie about love to. Of course, as with any romantic comedy, there are the typical plot elements – the guy tries to win the girl, ends up with her, and everything else. But this time around, the movie goes out of its way to make it more interesting by delving into the characters’ personalities.
Ultimately, Rome, Juliet, and the others should always be seen on the big screen. As long as movies are made, there will be people who appreciate them, and they will always get a second, third, and fourth viewing. I especially like comedies, because seeing love themes presented in a light-hearted manner is a joy to both watch and to be a part of. So when you get the chance, see this wonderful movie – you’ll have a great time!
