Is explained in detail by author Peter Bruck not only the symbolism of the image content, but also the importance of the various camera settings. Who previously held the movie only for an overly long clip à la MTV, you are wrong. And who already liked him, likes him after reading guarantees even more. Even the hectic opening scene, of which I was not previously so excited, I now understand better.
I can recommend this book not only fans of the film and the play, but movie fans in general: because in that here Terms about camera settings are explained, you can learn, movies - to enjoy even more aware in the future and designing ways - regardless of their content the directors to recognize. Maybe you even get pleasure myself times to turn a strip (even if one is the most likely then not quite as good as manage Baz Luhrmann).
* Note to people who do not understand German too well: *
You'll understand most of the stuff in this little book: all the questions and answers Concerning Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of Romeo and Juliet are in English. Only the preface and a few comments are in German. The book will tell you a lot about hidden meanings of Numerous scenes in the film, and about the meaning of different sorts of camera movement, field size and so on. You'll learn to appreciate the film more. A very useful book indeed, even if you're not a teacher or a student.
