Tromeo & Juliet

Directed by Lloyd Kaufman
United States, 1996
Comedy, Romance, Action

Synopsis

Cappy Capulet and Monty Que are business partners in a pornographic film deal. Their respective offspring, Juliet and Tromeo, get married and travel through Manhattan’s underground in search of love, violence, and the American Way.

Our take

Lloyd Kaufman returns to the director’s chair with what might be the most inspired adaptation of Romeo and Juliet cinema has seen. Set in the bygone world of 1990s New York City, the romanticism and heart of Shakespeare’s masterpiece is turned inside out in Troma’s beautifully tasteless rendition.

Tromeo & Juliet Directed by Lloyd Kaufman

Critics reviews

One of the most violent films of the 90s, it doubles as one of the most loyal adaptations of the play in the history of cinema, going back to the first Romeo and Juliet film in 1900—at least in terms of the words that are said, which are dotted with a bit of profanity (and gore and incest and etcetera) here and there.
