Romeo & Julius

Sabine Hviid, Denmark, 2009

25 min.DK/Documentary

A youth group called "The Theatre Factory" are preparing for their final annual production -
an updated version of Shakespeare¿s "Romeo & Juliet". In this adaptation two boys,
themselves struggling with their own questions of love alongside their roles on stage, perform
the central. Reality soon starts to interfere with the play as rehearsals begin. What was
intended as an abstraction in the film; the famous play about an impossible love, suddenly
becomes very real, as feelings begin to grow in them. The director Sabine Hviid combines
her documentation of the production with intimate interviews made within personal spaces
that contrast with the scope of Shakespeare¿s play and aim at showing the character¿s
internal life.
