This is a comedy about people who work in the theater, live for the theater, think of nothing but the theater. The director seems crazy, the art director has idiotic ideas, and the acting coach is eccentric: they even look like brothers, related by their common obsession for the theater, linked as one with the actors. The new project is Mozart's Don Giovanni, in which the director insists to give it a brand new interpretation and an avant-garde treatment. Now, he has to deal with the violent objection from the actors, the musicians, the singing coach, the stage manager, and even the cafe bar attendants and the cleaners. The situation is further complicated as the director is such a womanizer like Don Juan... and his lovers and kids keep bugging him throughout the rehearsal... Written by L.H. Wong <>

Artsy-fartsy, abysmal Fellini-wannabe that snowballs into a charade of theater sports ad-libs...
5 September 2008 | by (Åby, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Another hyped-up, critically acclaimed movie I waited 20 years to watch... and I'm quite stunned at how bad I actually find it! An almost abysmal attempt at theatrical farce about a Swedish staging of Mozart's opera "Don Juan" with a new, subversive director that puts more than one spin on its cast and orchestra ensemble.

Opens OK in its chaotic style but snowballs into a sort of non-stop charade of worse and worse, pointless theater sports ad-libs, with loud, seemingly impromptu dialog and opera song outbursts that are increasingly tiresome. Clearly a Fellini-wannabe in its anarchistic spirit and setting, but seriously, any of the scenes between the 15th and 100th minute could be randomly swapped around without making any difference to the story whatsoever! One also might have to be an opera aficionado to appreciate it. I, myself, can't stand opera, which of course makes this even more unendurable.

A few random chuckles and Glaser offers a good performance, but this is among the worst, so-called classic Swedish movies I've ever seen. I honestly, honestly can't see why it's so hailed. Artsy, you say? Fartsy, say I!

Tip: Director Osten and her steady team HAVE made a good movie: "Skyddsängeln". Catch that one instead!
