I am no Casanova. I am Don Juan.
After attempting to commit suicide, a strange young man is submitted to a psychiatric clinic in hopes of determining if he is in his right mind. Jack Mickler is a psychologist that is scheduled to retire in 10 days, the exact same amount of time the young man is scheduled to be evaluated before going in front of a judge. Dr. Mickler decides to take the case as his last case. The young man believes he is Don Juan Demarco, the great lover...and the more people that meet him, the more people that believe his story is true...
"I have slept with over 1,000 women. I turned 21 last Tuesday."
Jeremy Leven, director of Girl on a Bicycle, deliver Don Juan Demarco in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is very compelling and interesting. The plot actually reminded me of Life of Pi. The characters are so interesting and plot unfolds wonderfully. The case is awesome and includes Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando, Faye Dunaway, Stephen Singer, Talisa Soto, and Rachel Ticotin.

Don Juan Demarco is a film I have wanted to see for ages. I honestly had never seen this picture despite being a fan of Brando and Depp. I will say this film was better than I anticipated. This film was so well written and comes together beautifully at the end. I strongly recommend seeing this picture and it may be worth adding to your DVD collection.
