Romeo.Juliet

120' - 1990 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: English
Director: Armondo Linus Acosta With: John Hurt, Robert Powell, Francesca Annis
An eccentric Venetian bag lady, La Dame aux Chats (Sir John Hurt), lives with her pet rat on a houseboat named "Fellini". The only human being in this movie, she saves the lives of Juliet (Francesca Annis), a gorgeous pure white Turkish Angora and her feline family by smuggling them onto a boat bound for the New World. After arriving in the docks of New York City, Juliet meets her Romeo (Robert Powell), a smoky long-haired grey feral. Through the mystical grace of cats, featuring the music of Sergei Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet Ballet" score and voice-overs by award-winning British talent, the timeless love story unfolds.
