Almost fifteen years after Romeo and Juliet, Zeffirelli delivered yet another film about star-crossed young lovers. Endless? It's interminable - a tale of consummated puppy love between two high school kids, at first sanctioned by parents and then frustrated by them, whereupon the male partner burns down their house, is committed for psychiatric care, and from then on pursues his obsession of sexual reunion. Pitched at an audience of teenagers, it's of no interest to anyone else, except for a peculiar undertow of incest, inter-generational sex and giant death wishes. As excruciating as the Diana Ross/Lionel Richie title tune.
