William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet


William shakespeare s romeo and juliet usa 1996 120 min regia di baz luhrmann

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, USA, 1996, 120 min., Regia di Baz Luhrmann.

Una delle storie d’amore più famose della letteratura è quella di Romeo e Juliet (1595). Il loro amore appassionato ma contrastato, che si conclude con il suicidio di entrambi, è narrato dalla tragedia di W. Shakespeare.Il regista australiano Luhrmann rispetta il testo shakespeariano alla lettera, come dichiara il titolo stesso del film. Ma proprio questa fedeltà al testo accresce il contrasto con l’ambientazione in una Verona post-moderna

Dove le bande rivali dei Capuleti e dei Montecchi si affrontano in duelli stile western o si esibiscono in musical dal look trasgressivo. La parola poetica è quella originale, che appartiene ad un mondo passato, è in versi e in rima, mentre le immagini appartengono a una metropoli postindustriale, una sorta di California da telefilm, multietnica, violenta, lussuosa, sempre in frenetico movimento.

Questo contrasto tra parole ed immagini non è gratuito: esalta proprio il tema di fondo della tragedia shakespeariana – un amore travolgente, ma contrastato e impossibile, un amore che sfocia nella morte. Luhrmann vince così con successo la sfida di mettere in scena nel modo più originale e sconcertante proprio quell’opera di Shakespeare che conta, nella storia del cinema, il maggior numero di adattamenti cinematografici (80!).

Tutto il film è impostato sull’artificio della contrapposizione degli stili e sulla continua continua citazione. La sequenza del duello iniziale è esemplare:il montaggio è frenetico, alterna continuamente un ritmo velocissimo al rallentamento estremo, le panoramiche vertiginose dall’elicottero al dettaglio iperrealistico; abbondano gli effetti speciali; inoltre vi è un esplicito richiamo ai western di Sergio Leone o ai film d’azione di John Woo (il regista di Mission Impossible).

Un altro episodio fondamentale è quello della festa nella villa dei Capuleti, che unisce l’omaggio al musical e al videoclip con il gusto della trasgressione e del travestitismo. Solo Romeo e Giulietta, che qui si conoscono e si innamorano, sono lenti, misurati, silenziosi, diversi da tutti gli altri.

Il messaggio fondamentale del film è affidato a padre Lorenzo:

“Amatevi con moderazione, le gioie violente hanno violenta fine…”.

Il film mette in scena un mondo di “gioie violente”, a cui la lenta concentrazione dei protagonisti non riesce ad opporsi, fino alla “violenta fine”. L’annunciatrice di un telegiornale, all’inizio e alla fine, ci assicura che questo è accaduto un tempo ma continua e continuerà ad accadere sempre.

Shakespeare’s tragedy is postponed to modern times in order to let this tragedy be known as drama, comedy, and tragedy all in one.

The purpose of this story is to build a world that expressed the social and economic realities of Shakespeare’s times in the 20th century images.

To create the image of a city where religion and the state are as one, a giant statue of Jesus has been put in the real Mexico City, where the movie took place.
