The Lovers of Verona

A Feature film by André Cayatte

Produced by CICC Films Borderie

Release in France : 07/03/1949

    Synopsis

    Angelo and Georgia are thrown together when they become stand-ins for the stars of a film version of Romeo and Juliet being shot on location in Venice. Inevitably they fall in love and their affair parallels the Shakespeare tragedy. The principal difficulty is the scheming of Rafaële, the Magia family's ruthless consigliere. In the end, Angelo is killed and Georgia dies at his side.

    Critical reception

    TV Guide called it "An intriguing romance" but Bosley Crowther did not like the film, calling it, "story, set within a weird and grotesque frame of contemporary morbidness in Venice and gaudy film-making in Italy" Pauline Kael said, "The film's sensuous poetic elegance contrasts with the seamy elements it encompasses...You may feel you've been made too aware of the film's artistic intentions, and the romanticism can drive you a little nuts".
