Film Season : 'West Side Story' (Cert.PG)

Directors: Robert Wise & Jerome Robbins, 1961
Starring Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Rita Moreno and George Chakiris.

Leonard Bernstein's 1957 Broadway musical West Side Story was made into a dynamic film and tells the story of Tony & Maria, ill-fated lovers trying to cross the divide of racism and hate.

The tale is loosely based on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, swapping 16th century Italy for 1950's upper West Side.

Set against the backdrop of rival gangs-the all American 'Jets' and the Puerto Rico 'Sharks', Maria's brother is in the 'Sharks' and Tony affiliates with the 'Jets' and both gangs bitterly hate each other.

West Side Story has it all: social drama, prejudice, violence, tragedy and humour, and, of course, song & dance.

The expressive songs are written by Stephen Sondheim, most of which are recognisable without having to see the film, and the fast, playful, 'America' is brilliantly danced and sung by Rita Moreno and George Chakaris and, with an impressive emotional score by Leonard Bernstein, you have the perfect accompaniment.

And then there's the dance-choreographed by Jerome Robbins - it's spectacular!

The dancing is innovative and exciting, and the camera goes from sweeping high angles to low to capture some of the most original dance scenes ever filmed.

To be truthful I'm not a great fan of the 'Musical' and enjoy only a few, but West Side Story is pretty amazing.
