Juliet cut herself off from her Nurse, her parents and her social status when she followed Romeo.

I will be talking about the body language, costumes, colour schemes, the sounds, music and camera angles used in each of the films.

Both of the dance scenes happened in a big hall. Both of the movies have big family which is fight and the one who leads the fight. We have this unshakeable feeling hat trouble is brewing as soon as the story commences.

A comparison of romeo and juliet and west side story two romance movies

What the protagonists in both stories Romeo and Juliet wanted were different from what the society expected from them. The difference between the two peace-makers is that the Prince has more power than the Lieutenant.

There are many different aspects that create different quality of romantic tension in these two scenes All of the characters are consistent to the heart and soul of the story as well as the slightly differing plots.

This play was so successful that many other movies have copied the plot but changed the scenery. The royal families decide to put fights aside and work out the tension after the Prince talks to both groups. Violence brought about by love is another theme that permeates in both stories. It talks about intense passion between the star-crossed lover Romeo and Juliet. Their love was doomed from the start because of their feuding families- the Montague represented by Romeo and Capulet, by Juliet. Tony and Romeo are just the opposite. By watching them, we can found the similarities and differences of them in the way the story goes, the time and place of the movies, and the name and the existence of some characters in the movies. While searching for the man who has supposedly killed his beloved, Tony spots Maria, alive and well, as does an enraged Chino.

Identical to Romeo and Juliet, love is their sole concern. In both Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story, the lovers were forced to take their own lives or be killed because of fate and the actions of others.

The characters have a direct correlation to each other, yet racial issues give them a new light. Tony and Maria are also less preoccupied with the bonds of marriage and love in their society, while it's almost like a sin for Romeo and Juliet to be together before being married.
