When Romeo learned that Juliet was the daughter of the Capulet family, he said: "Are you a Capulet? Oh dear, my life is in the hands of the enemy." And Juliet said to the nanny: "If you have a wife, maybe that grave will be my wedding bed." And when she learned that Romeo was a Montague, she exclaimed:
A born feud a love affair
Hurry up and see you soon, know if it's too late!
Where love is difficult
Hate turns into a yearning for love.
These words of Juliet are also the inspiration for love full of their disobedience. Both of them could not sleep at night. Romeo risks climbing into Juliet's wall even though he knows he could be killed. And by chance he overheard Juliet's confidants. From here leads to a love full of hardships, twists and a tragic ending. With the tragic death of the young couple, the two families were united in grief. Peace for two families has come at the high cost of love and death.
In the 1968 film directed by Franco Zeffirelli, the two main actors playing Romeo and Juliet, Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey, and the song "Once for each of us" made a strong impression.
"A Time for Us" - often incorrectly referred to as "Romeo and Juliet" - is a song written specifically for the film Romeo and Juliet, with lyrics by Larry Kusik and Eddie Snyder composed, while the music was composed by talented musician Nino Rota. Immediately after the film was released in 1968, A time for us became a popular song of young people.
The lyrics resound as smooth, mellow and full of love as the movie itself: "There will be a time, a time for each of us, When courage takes us to overcome barriers. Happiness comes again, love is liberated…”. “With the sun of love shining, We will overcome all storms, all difficulties. We will bravely express the love that we have kept hidden for so long. And the world will be filled with hope, for you and me." "Nothing is everything, idyllic and gentle, living for love is the happiest thing."
