Molière’s lampoon of the Don Juan legend sees Heaven and Earth coming together in an outlandish partnership to seal the fate of the unrepentant rascal. More…
Don Juan has just gotten married—so naturally it’s time for him to get out of town. Thus begins the strangest road trip in history; a madcap journey by sea and land in which our “hero” lies, cheats, blusters, and seduces his way across the world—much to the dismay of his honest but dim servant—in an effort to escape his blushing bride’s outraged family. But there’s an unearthly surprise waiting at the end of their road. Perhaps Molière’s most quixotic farce, "Don Juan" teases the limits of reality, and brings the natural and supernatural into an outlandish partnership to seal the fate of one deliciously unrepentant rascal.
See it if you've never seen Don Juan before (I hadn't). Not much plot; lots of episodes of bad behavior. The statue that comes to life is weird fun.
Don't see it if you want a fully satisfying theater outing. DJ was interesting at first, but got repetitive. Modern language was a bit jarring.
