I defy you, stars!
The moment in Romeo + Juliet when Leo falls over in the church wasn’t in the script. The floor was slippery which caused him to fall over, but since it fitted in with Friar Laurence’s line “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast,” it was kept in the film.
Romeo & Juliet 2012 - the first images!
The first behind the scene images from Carlo Carlei’s Romeo & Juliet have surfaced on the web! It seems one of the first scenes to be shot is actually the final scene, the morning funeral when Romeo and Juliet are found dead and the Capulets & Montagues finally end their feud. We can already get the feel from the medieval setting and take a first look at the costumes! Enjoy the first images from this highly anticipated version.
There are more images where these came from.
And all this day an unaccustomed spirit lifts me above the ground with cheerful thoughts.
I dreamt my lady came and found me dead and breathed such life with kisses in my lips that I revived and was an emperor.
Ah, me! How sweet is love itself possessed, when but love’s shadows are so rich in joy!
