I have read the text version of Romeo and Juliet when I was a secondary student. In order to comprehend the story deeply, I have watched Romeo & Juliet (1968 film) recently. This film won many award and was very successful. Romeo and Juliet was popular, especially among teenagers since it is a romance film (Romeo and Juliet, 2014).
Romeo & Juliet is generally known as a sad story. This tragedy believed to occur by chance or by destiny (Studymode, 1999). Those people criticized Romeo for falling in love too quickly. However, it is reasonable as they were teenagers. Perhaps Romeo and Juliet were falling in love too quickly, it does not mean that it was just a puppy love and they did not know what love really is (Romeo and Juliet, 2014). Even if they were teenagers and they were probably did not have any experiences, they still have another chance to love somebody. People should not criticize that their love was immature.
Nowadays, falling in love with a person is not really difficult. Some of the people even have a love triangle. In the past, people could just meet someone who arranged by their parents. And, they probably got married at the end. They did not want to being married, but they had no choice. Back to now, not only in Europe, people in Hong Kong, they can choose who they want to being with. We can see that there are big difference between the past and now. For now, we have more freedom on love.
Romeo was a passionate, clever and moody teenager. He was loyal to his friends, but in sometime, his behaviors are quite unpredictable. Romeo was loyal to Juliet since he believed that she is his fate. He found that Juliet died and he committed suicide right after Juliet’s death. Romeo wanted to stay with Juliet, he also believed that they will meet again in another world so he did not think much. He never considered that Juliet was pretending to die. Romeo’s death is not alike with some teenagers who committed suicide today. He killed himself since Juliet and he were from different feuding families to show us how much Romeo loves Juliet.
The love between Romeo and Juliet is admirable. However, Romeo chose to kill himself is not a clever behavior. He will be regretful if he knows that Juliet did not die. Romeo passed away, he left Juliet and his family. They were sad because of his death. Even if Juliet was really died, Romeo should continue his living, but not kill himself. Romeo can always miss Juliet in his whole life. It still means that he loves Juliet. Therefore, killing himself is not the only way to show his love to Juliet. People today should not do the same thing as Romeo did.
Juliet was pretty and innocent. Maybe she was not the active role in the relationship between Romeo and her. It does not mean that she did not love Romeo. Actually, she did. Juliet was more careful and introvert than Romeo to their relationship. And, one day, she understood her feelings to Romeo and she became a determine girl who showed all her love to her...
