rated for 0 + years
A story about a man who loved and loathed women, a heartless seducer who took great delight in enticing and abandoning his prey. In his film – an adaptation of W. A. Mozart‘s opera “Don Giovanni”, Kasper Holten‘s focus is on the balance between man‘s sexual instinct and destructive drive. In this story, the sensual Juan is a self-confident, modern man, who has a perpetual need to feel and sense life to the full. Artistic director of the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen, Holten‘s directorial focus has been on making his stories as emotionally relevant and as soul-penetrating as possible.
