The ghost of Don Juan Tenorio, the legendary rogue and lover from Sevilla, comes back to town once again on present days searching for the absolution. The spirit, unintentionally takes the place of Juan Marquina, an actor who looks exactly like him. Written by
The movie begins with Don Juan escaping from Pergatory in order to do a deed good enough to elevate him to heaven. He stumbles into a group working on a play about Don Juan and he is mistaken for the actor who plays the role of Don Juan---who, of course, looks exactly like the actual Don Juan. Then, a series of not terribly funny bits ensue. There is a lot of bawdiness and goofiness, but it appears to be funny and titillating only to the average 13 year-old. Believe me--this movie just misses the mark again and again.
For a MUCH, MUCH better movie, see Ingmar Bergman's movie about Don Juan (THE DEVIL'S EYE). In this film, Don Juan is sent by Satan to despoil a seemingly incorruptible virgin. While this isn't a great film, it's head and shoulders above DON JUAN MY LOVE and is well worth watching.
