Storyline

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 <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

The clash and splash of theater versus opera
9 January 2003 | by (Malmo, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a farce, although a bit high-brow, about what happens when an experimental stage director tries to make an opera ensemble get out on a limb, and do some daring acting. It is soon far too obvious that the two stages are quite different, and even more so the people who walk on them.

The director has a hard time, trying to accomplish anything at all, and chaos is soon at hand. It's a lot of fun, especially for an audience familiar with both the theater and the opera.

Suzanne Osten and Etienne Glaser, the couple responsible for this movie, have a long experience with the theater, where they have been frequently praised for their accomplishments. The movie was a huge hit in Sweden, when it premiered, although it did not seem to have significant lasting qualities. I'm not even sure it was intended to have any.

A somber circumstance, which is hard to label 'trivia', is that this movie was the one Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme saw, on the night of his assassination in 1986. He was shot when leaving the cinema.
