A brilliant film that sets the ageless story of Romeo and Juliet, in 1950s New York. A heartbreaking film with superb performances and a brilliant direction.

Romeo and Juliet is updated to the tenements of New York City in this Oscar-winning musical landmark. Adapted by Ernest Lehman from the Broadway production, the movie opens with an overhead shot of Manhattan, an effect that director Robert Wise would repeat over the Alps in The Sound of Music four years later. We are introduced to two rival street gangs: the Jets, second-generation American teens,... read more

What should you call toughies who like to jump, shuffle, clap and pirouette at the slightest provocation? Hit the high notes at the flick of a pen knife? That would be the Jets or Sharks, while this here policeman is Officer Krupke. Maria and Tony, the starcrossed lovers. Protective brother Bernardo. Jealous beau Chino. Tony's bestfriend Riff. And there you have it, a musical based on the t... read more

" I really enjoyed this story. It was a neat twist on the Romeo and Juliet tale. What I did not enjoy was the singing. The dancing was amazing...but the singing...damn. Natalie Wood and the lady who sang the 'In America' song were the only ones who could carry a melody, in my opinion. I wasn't expecting the twist at the end, but that's what makes any story surprising. In any case, I'm glad I finally saw it. :)"

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1960's) (153 movies items)

" Notes: First of all, I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of musicals but this one was definitely an exception. Sure, it was yet another adaptation of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ but it is one of the very few movies which managed to give a satisfying modern twist to this timeless tale. Furthermore, most of the songs were pretty neat (even if none of the main cast actually sang those tunes) but, above all, I really loved the dancing which was some of the best I have seen in a musical.
