Many movies have been made from the tale of star-crossed lovers all over the world with modified settings, different names and languages.

@OmSigDAVID,
WSS is one of the most well known. Less well known is a movie called China Girl. I was wondering if a move like Avatar would count or the song Leader of the Pack?

"Shakespeare in Love", which has Will writing "Romeo and Juliet" because he falls in love himself, and significant portions of "R&J" get enacted in the play-within-a-play that the movie is.
