Romeo y Julieta

This video shows a kind of game, which I used to play with my grandmother when I was a child. 
We called it "Romeo & Juliet". 
I always wanted to make this ritual again, but the paper matches dissappeared from the market so many years ago.
I made the association of this dissapeareance to the changes in our society at the human relations level. 
The times have changed and nobody believes in affective bonds today, because they are deep and fragile. They are temporary and very easy to break.
Neither is possible to play "Romeo & Juliet".
But a few months ago, at the Tristan Narvaja fair, among a lot of empty match boxes ,I found this one: the only one which was full.
