I don't remember this movie that well, I just remember liking it.
Complete escapism for the hopeless romantics out there. Very charming movie, a must see ❤
The best romance movie ever made!
Don Juan DeMarco hasn't a clever plot at all, but it prefer to watch it like a light movie that will entertain with the help of the charismatic Johnny Depp and with some funny scenes that will make you smile.
One of the best Romantic comedies ever made! The cast is absolutely talented too, and the mise-en-scene is absolutely fabulous!
Absolutely perfect romantic fable.
A story about modern day Don Juan, enriched by brillian cast of Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway. The story itself, although trying to be enigmatic and mysterious, doesn't excite as much as one could expect.
Interesting and what felt like a rare concept. A pretty unique story about a man from Mexico desperate for absolutely nothing but love who is looked after by a retiring psychiatrist. The psychiatrist loses himself in what the "lovable" man has to say and soon changes his own life instead of the patients. It's a more beauty-themed romantic adventure set during a modern era. Depp expresses his character smoothly and in much of a lovely way that couldn't be all that described. A good relaxing drama overall.
He who says every woman is a mystery to be solved.
One of the earliest films for Johnny Depp and very surprising. Thematically, the film is for the grown ups, but well made without too much sexual exploit. That means you can comfortably sit and watch with your family. This is not actually about Don Juan, but kind of 'The Fall'. I mean the flashback reveals everything and remains as a mystery.
The story follows a man who himself declares the real Don Juan DeMarco, the greatest lover of the world. So he ends in a psychiatric centre for the treatment after trying to commit suicide. A doctor who is on the verge to retire set to treat him and when the DeMarco narrates his life story, the doctor too inspires to reinstate his romantic life. The remaining narration tells how they work out to solve the issue once for all.
Not a masterpiece, but kind of interesting drama, particularly for how the film characters were drawn. And the story was built cleverly, till the final scene by giving out the viewers a positive message that worth living life to love and to be loved. So if you opt it for the title, not a bad choice, since the theme remains about the love, even the person you are looking for is not present. More like it is a metaphor, when it comes to the real Don Juan and the one in this film. Like people say god is everywhere, the love is as well and so the version/personality of Don Juan in every person.
Johnny Depp was so good, an ideal person to play the title role. Marlon Brando was too great, in a simple way. The rest of the cast was not bad, but the entire film focused on these two than anybody else. It's been nearly 25 years since it came out, but I feel a remake would be not a bad idea with changes in the script. Todays writer and directors are clever at doing that, but it should come from a big banner with big names. Maybe Johnny Deep to play the doctor in the modern version. I hope some filmmakers read this and consider that. Meanwhile, it is a worthy film, so it a try.
One of the most enjoyable movies I've seen.
