Romeo and Juliet: A Love Song


New Zealand 2013, 107 minutes
Dir. Tim van Dammen
Rating: [M] Violence.
Genres: Drama / Shakespeare, Musical


“The latest iteration of Shakespeare’s indestructible tragedy of teen love comes as a triumphant blast of 21st-century Kiwi trailer trash pop.”~New Zealand International Film Festival

Aroview: The Bard's most iconic play is performed with colloquial gusto in this inventive musical transposing of the tale of star-crossed lovers to an eccentric Kiwi campground.

While it certainly has its moments, the technique of the actors miming to other people's singing voices feels more like a compromise than an aesthetic choice, though fair maiden Juliet (as played by Parlak) makes a charismatic heroine.
