Comparison: Romeo and Juliet / West Side Story
Comparison between: "Romeo and Juliet"
"West side Story"
-They say 7 times "Good Night"
-It takes place at night: (night keeps their secrets). It a time when you can dream and your dreams will come true.
-They know they are different from the rest of the world: "they are not one of us"
-Symbol of the balcony: it is both part of her intimary, but also outside her world (the world rejects)
-Maria doesn't want Tony to see her father because she knows he won't like him.
-Tony/ Romeo is more excited than Maria/Juliet. She seems to be sensible.
-There is a change in rofes: at the beginning Maria calms him down, at the end it's Tony who says "Shhh". They are aware of the danger.
-They didn't kiss
-They sing together
-Maria saw Tony first
-Tony steps on the balcony: they are on an equal footing.
-The balcony is an emergency staircase which fooks like a jail ( maybe it symbolizes the prison is which their social background had put them).
-" star-crossed lovers"
-Their love is impossible in this world
-Yet, they challenge their families or gang to love each other. They betray their origins.
-A world apart
Movie summons: " It's not us, it's everything around us". Here Maria means the problem comes from the others. Romeo and Juliet just like Tony and Maria symbolize the perfect love ideal-love which can't exist in the world of hateful.
The place they are looking for is not definitive: - "a place"/ "there"/ "Some" (Somehow; Somewhere; Someday...)
The point commun between Romeo and Juliet then Tony and Maria=where perfect love exist ?
