28 October 2002 | by Jonas KyratzesSee all my reviews

Romanoff and Juliet is one of the best movies I've seen, and had me laughing out loud most of the time. It is both a lighthearted comedy and an excellent satire of both the US and the Soviet Union. A very intelligent and deep satire, at that, which gets just about everything right. Peter Ustinov is very likeable and extremely funny in his role, but so are all the other actors. A true gem. 10/10
