Go and see Sally Potter's film "Yes".

It bowled me over. All dialogue is in rhyming verse, modulated for the rythm of the film, and that rythm also drives everything else, the camera-work, the movement, the score. The film is a romance, intense passionate and intellectual, looking at life's contrasts, perceptions and desires. You can google to find plot summaries, I'm just going to gush about it.
