Franco Zeffili’s Film Version of Romeo and JulietRomeo and Juliet is a play about two young adults that fall in love with eachother. The only thing that is holding these tow lovers back is the feudingbetween the two families. “Was Franco Zeffili’s film version of the play “Romeo and Juliet an improvementover Shakespeares play?” Yes, Franco Zeffelli’s film was an improvement overShakespeares play because he changed the dialogue a little, he made the locationbetter, and the Tybalt and Romeo duel was action packed. I really liked the real elaborate scenery in the movie. I liked all the nicelooking buildings.
I also liked the scenery because it was real open and rightin the center of the city. Franco Zeffelli really added a lot to the great battle scene between Romeo andTybalt. In the actual play the fight sounded stupid and it seemed like itbarely lasted a minute. In the movie the fight scene was great because it was along fierce fight.
Franco Zeffelli’s film was a great improvement over Shakespeares play. He madeit better by taking out some of the boring dialogue. He changed the sceneryaround a lot. The fight scene was a lot better also.
Over all the film wastwice as good as the play.
