Baz Luhrman version — this version is set in modern times, in a large city, Verona. The language is Shakespearian but everything else has been converted to modern style. Franco Zefferreli — This is set in medieval times.
Most things are as the original text. It seems like a Greek or Italian city, however it is still Verona. In the modern, Luhrman version, a news reporter on a television against a black background does this, however in the Zefferelli version, the prologue is told as the credits and title is shown.
The speaker is not seen, and the voice is coming from the background, the speech is in an old style. In addition, the Luhrman version has a series of scenes that explain and show to the viewers who the different characters in the film are, also in these scenes it repeats a section of the prologue in text and speech accompanied by fast paced, classical music.
After the prologue, the two films move onto Act 1 Scene 1. The speech is cut and it starts the scene at line 7. However, in this version, it is the Montagues that are shown first, whereas in the original text it is the Capulet.
The Zefferelli version follows the text more closely. The scene is set in a market place with the Capulets walking along and the speech starts from the original starting point. I think that the Luhrman version has a much better introduction to the film than the Zefferelli.
The mix of the TV reporter, the flashing text along with the speech and the racing classical music during the action scenes is very eye catching and makes you want to see the rest of the film. In the original text, the production is set in fair Verona, an old style Italian setting, which means white houses, vines etc.
The Luhrman production sets the scene in fair Verona. However, this setting is very different from the original text. There are tall rectangular buildings and skyscrapers, mainly metallic colours around. The actual scene begins in a petrol station as opposed to a market place in the original text.
However, there are quite a few cars. The section is mainly set in the petrol station, therefore there are many petrol pumps and light colours. The Zefferelli version follows the text much more closely.
The setting and scene are set in an old style Italian or Greek market place with lots of people around. There are many bright colours and many different objects.
There are food stalls with multicoloured foods, and merchants and people walking around. The Zefferelli version shows that clearly to the viewer, however the Luhrman version has completely changed it.
There are only a few people, most of whom are the main characters and it is set in a completely different location.
He is trying to tell us that these two are the same in nearly all respects and that they hold a grudge. Like fighting fire with fire, two equal sides fighting.
However, the films are different in some respects. The Luhrman represents the Montagues first as a group of unlawful and trouble causing. This is shown with them driving down the road in a relaxed kind of fashion and screaming out of the car, also in their clothing.Published: Thu, 13 Jul The renowned William Shakespeare’s play, “Romeo and Juliet” was directed into two movie versions; the traditional version of that was directed by Franco Zeffirelli and the modern version of that followed as directed by Baz Luhrman.
