    West Side Story, to me, is the classic that never grows old. I never tire of seeing this great film again and again. It always feels like I'm seeing West Side Story (the film) for the first time, and I always notice at least one or two things that I didn't notice in the previous viewing.

    I have seen it a few days ago at school in music lessons, that\'s a fantastic film! Bernardo(George Chakiris) is my favourite.
