Storyline

Well-respected psychiatrist Dr. Jack Mickler is only 10 days away from his retirement. A week before he is due to leave, he encounters a young man who attempts suicide--would be a pretty straightforward case except the young man claims to be Don Juan, the fabled Spanish nobleman and world renowned seducer/lover of woman. Despite original hostility from his co-workers, Jack manages to persuade his associates to put the youth in his care for 10 days after which the youth will undergo an evaluation to be either released from psychiatric care or sent to a mental institution.

Whilst doing so the man's philosophies and zeal for life and love begins to revive Dr. Mickler's somewhat passionless relationship with his wife, Marilyn as well as challenging his own views and ethics to the point where both he ...

Trivia

Mike Judge heard a rumor that Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp were both fans of his animated series Beavis and Butt-Head (1993) and at one point, when cameras were not rolling, Brando and Depp were sitting on a couch doing impressions of the animated duo. It is believed that Brando did Butt-Head and Depp did Beavis. At one point, Johnny Depp personally asked Mike Judge if he could play Beavis if a live action movie were made. See more »

Quotes

Don Juan: You know, my friend, until this afternoon, I had always believed that a man could love only one woman. I have been badly misled. It is absolutely incredible to me that just a few hours ago, Dona Julia was the only woman who existed, and now, now, there is the magnificent Sultana Gulbeyaz. What a glorious body... breasts...

Quite satisfying
26 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a must, if you have even one romantic bone in your body. Depp is perfect as the lead, and I have never enjoyed Brando and Dunaway more. This movie is unique in my movie-going experience, as the entire audience applauded when it was over, which doesn't happen in NYC theatres too often.
