Description In his contemporary reworking of Romeo and Juliet, Lithuanian director Oskaras Kor?unovas sets the infamous conflict between the Capulets and Montagues in rival pizzerias. Kor?unovas deftly handles both the humour and dark tragedy of this famous work, moving artfully from the crude and hilarious to the delicate and sombre.
