Baz Luhrmann's William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet,

death scene


O my love! my wife! 

Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, 

Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty: 

Thou art not conquered; beauty's ensign yet 

Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, 

And death's pale flag is not advanced there....

Ah, dear Juliet, 

Why art thou yet so fair? shall I believe 

That unsubstantial death is amorous, 


Thee here in dark to be his paramour? [kisses her, gives her the ring]

Here,...O, here 

Will I set up my everlasting rest, 

And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars 

From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last. 

Arms, take your last embrace. and, lips, O you 

The doors to breath, seal with a righteous kiss [cries, drinks poison]

A dateless bargain to engrossing death.


Romeo. O, what's here?... 

Drunk all, and left no friendly drop 

To help me after? I will kiss thy lips; 

Haply some poison yet doth hang on them.

Thy lips are warm. 


[in a whisper] Thus with a kiss I die. [dies]


[cries, takes gun, shoots herself]
