Both films provided very different perspectives on Shakespeare's text because of the eras they were set in. The symbolism and imagery in both films were very different because of this factor. Zefferelli’s film remains faithful to Shakespeare’s original play, whereas Luhrmann made a more modern version of it. Zefferelli didn’t change the play much; it was aimed at people who wanted a film that was basically the same as the play, but with better scenery and cuts.

The typical person does not give much thought to the behind the scenes elements of a movie.
