This odd 1970 production is not, repeat not the famous opera by Wolfgang Mozart. In fact, it is a highly mannered (some would say pretentious) dig at the legend of the infamous "swordsman" and duellist, Don Juan, complete with bombastic music composed especially for the movie. Artful intercutting and other effects combine with a psychologically oriented story to delve deep into the inner workings of a man the director clearly thinks is very complex, very deep. The director himself plays the lead, and reviewers were not kind in their remarks about either his film or his acting.
