Then we see them smiling and for the first time they are close together and there is no barrier when Romeo is superimposed on to Juliet's side of the fish tank. But there are a few characters who abuse and use violence excessively, a perfect example is Tybalt. This is shown when the nurse goes to Juliet and finds her dead. Romeo then proceeds to kill Tybalt without thinking of the consequences of doing so. Also Luhrmann wanted to show a closer relationship between lady Capulet and Tybalt by making them kiss. They enhance the meaning of the song by using a longing tone which is shown throughout the scene.
Famous for many, one that includes Romeo and Juliet. The way Capulet handles the situation with Paris shows the love and kindness he feels for his daughter. Shakespeare had Montague raise a statue in Juliets honor, signifying the end of their feud. But Romeo persuades the Friar that this time he has found true love and that he is ready to enter immediately into the serious bond of holy matrimony. Also the time period helps change the story from old to modern.
When people read the play, they are able to relate to the characters to a certain degree. The older movie was set in Early Renaissance times. In the play, he was a respected, skilled, and in-shape person; however in the film, he is a cruel, hated, fat old man. Romeo describes to his friends of how lovesick he is, and of the beauty of Rosaline. While Romeo and Juliet are reciting the sonnet Juliet is laid on a dark background to make her stand out. Lord Capulet wants his daughter, Juliet, to marry a man named Paris once she is a few years older. It is about rivalry between two teenage gangs of different backgrounds.
One may say that those similarities lead them into their star-crossed the love. Act 2, Scene 5 Scene 5 opens in Capulet's orchard. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare and Romeo and Juliet interpreted by Zeffirelli are two versions of a classic tale of two young lovers. Movie Compare and Contrast There are many similarities and differences between the sixties version of Romeo and Juliet and the modern version of Romeo and Juliet. Tony is a member of the Jets street gang in New York City, and Maria is the sister of the leader of the Sharks. In West Side Story, Tony was being hunted down by a gang member.
It had no relevance to the story line what so ever. These movies told the romance in similar, but still in different ways. As well as this we come to understand that with the roughness of love comes indifferent sexualities, gender conflicts and powered bravados that entwine themselves into one big mess to indeed create the established plays we read today. After Juliet falls in love with Romeo, she remains true to him and loves him until the end. In Romeo and Juliet, they used mostly daggers and swords.
Here, Montague informs everyone that Romeo has locked himself in his room and has been crying all day. The last similarity is the ending in both the play, and movie. Juliet is higher then Romeo and is like the balcony scene. What seems to be a playful fight between him and Tybalt ends in his own death. The omission of characters from important scene was not the only change noted between the two. Capulet believes that his daughter is too young to marry.
Let us get on to the similarities and differences. Also her bright red dress stands out from the other dark dresses. In reading Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet and viewing Zeffirellis Romeo and Juliet one becomes aware of many differences between them. He is in love with Rosaline… Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a tragedy by William Shakespeare following the love story of two star-crossed lovers. Yet, this is not the case for Romeo. The two are family run corporations that are against each other.
Luhrmann could of used anything like what Zefferelli used, which was a person, but he didn't, as he was inspired to use the fish tank because of his culture. Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story are obviously similar in many ways, but there are many things that make each of these stories unique from the other. The Nurse comes in, preoccupied with her own troubles. Kissing is a sign of closeness in our time and so we would understand what it meant and this may have influenced luhrmann to add the kiss in to represent their closeness. He went to free grammar school in Stratford. The differences are the characters, and scenes.
At the beginning of the play, Romeo is deeply in love with Rosaline. She is seen exiting the final scene in both versions. In the Romeo got dizzy for a minute at the party and then he was fine. This shows that locking himself in his room all day is a complete overreaction. Juliet is more cautious than Romeo. One interpretation was to make an authentic realistic movie trying keeps to the original era it was set in which was the medieval ages.
