Editorial Reviews

Actor Jacques Weber made his directorial debut with this film adaptation of Moliere’s 1665 play Don Juan. In early 17th-century Spain, the nobleman Don Juan (Weber) and his valet are on the run from two brothers out to seek revenge for the abandonment of his promise to marry their sister, Elvire (Emmanuelle Béart). With no signs of repentance, Don Juan continues his amorous conquests with women he meets along the way (Penélope Cruz, Ariadna Gil) regardless of the consequences.

Few stories about libertines have fared as well as the perennial favorite Don Juan: Mozart was inspired to write 'Don Giovanni', George Bernard Shaw penned 'Don Juan in Hell", Baudelaire wrote a play also called 'Don Juan in Hell', Jeremy Leven adapted the tale for his film 'Don Juan di Marco' for Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp - the list is nearly endless. But few adaptations of Moliere's original 1665 play have been as successful in revealing the inner man of the infamous lothario as Jacques Weber's DON JUAN. And the result is a revelation.

Jacques Weber not only carefully adapted the Moliere play, he also directs and stars (as Don Juan) in this cinema verita version. No dawdling with the feminine conquests here, this Don Juan is a may on the run, trying to avoid retribution for the scandals he causes. Weber is older, white haired, rotund, and in general does not have the physical appearance one would expect from the man who could conquer the hearts of thousands of women. This crystallizes the amoral life and mind of a man who cares for nothing except self-gratification at the expense of others. He does not believe in God, In the heaven/hell concept, he really doesn't think beyond lust and domination.

Accompanying Don Juan on his travels is his loyal servant Sganarelle (Michel Boujenah), the character who Mozart named Leparello, who does not condone his master's behavior and is constantly warning him of the inevitable outcome of his lifestyle. As the film opens Don Juan and Sganarelle, accompanied by an entourage of gentlemen, are on the run from the wrath of the brother of his last conquest Elvire (Emmanuelle Béart).

Buyer beware: the DVD is not anamorphic widescreen. Shame on Koch Lorber for such a shoddy transfer.

I looked forward to seeing this French film but after about 20 minutes of it, I was bored despite the beautiful presence of Penelope Cruz who sounds great in French (her first foreign language) as she does in her native Spanish. What ruined it for me was that Don Juan was played by Jacques Weber, who's too old and ugly to pass for a Casanova which woman fall for. There are so many more handsome European actors that could've been more convincing like Olivier Martinez, Antonio Banderas and even Cruz's current beau, Javier Badem. Outside of Cruz, Emmanuelle Beart is also sensational!!
