Don Juan DeMarco (1995)

Directed by Jeremy Leven

Starring Johnny Depp, Marlon Brando, Faye Dunaway

This week there a no new films that caught my attention so I decided to see films that I have not seen in a while. Starting with this great romantic- fantasy film.

The story centers around this 21-year-old who believes he is Don Juan, the world’s greatest lover. When he is on the ledge of a building, Dr. Mickler pretends to be Octavio del Flores to convince Don Juan to come down. In the hospital, he has 10 days to convince the Dr. That he is Don Juan.

This is such a good film. It has a charming story with great characters. It has a little of everything, romance, comedy, and drama even in some situations. I love how the two main characters’ relationship and how it is the doctor who keeps changing.

The movie has two great performances. One is by the great Marlon Brando. The other is by a young Johnny Depp who makes the world of Don Juan come to life. And then Faye Dunaway stands out as Brando’s character’s wife.
