We have seen so many versions of the classical tragedy slash love story of Romeo and Juliet, but for this

one it takes a different perspective.This is also my first time to review a local indie film. Romeo at Juliet is not actually the names of the lead characters but it follows the plot of the classic love tragedy. It tells the lives of Jospeh and Angel both having a complicated past and present. Their love flourished even if there was a lot of secrets behind their personalities. Also there is complex connection and history on how the characters came to be. The story is good, however I feel that some dialogues are not natural for those scenes.
Overall, the feel was still very good, there was love, there was pain, the sexy scenes was erotic in an

artistic way enough just to stimute the senses. There was really no nudity on the film, which most of us

was expecting but it rather left an impression of the storyline. Although it was really a love story,  a story based from the tragedy did spin off into scenes not suitable for all ages. I dont know what is the official rating for this movie by the MTRCB, but I think it would rated as R-18. I however recommend this movie for those who are into appreciating the art of the movie and not to get mushy on how their love flourished like other love flicks. There is a lot of good surprizes in the movie and its really worth your money for this local indie.

Deliberation time kids!
