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 coworkers Jack manages to persuade his associates to put the boy in his care for 10 days after which the boy will undergo an evaluation to be either released from psychiatric care or sent to a mental institution.

According to Johnny Depp on the Turner Classic Movies documentary on Marlon Brando, In the scene where he and Brando are sitting at the table talking about the inconsistencies in DeMarco's (Depp) character, when DeMarco admits his father was from New York, Depp's lines were re written just before shooting the scene so he had no time to prepare and memorize the lines. So Marlon Brando talked to the Director and cinematographer to find out where the cameras angles were. He then worked out a way in which he cut up Depp's lines in the script and pasted them to the cup of coffee in his hand and then held the cup in his hand in such a way that the camera wouldn't pick up the pasted lines and Depp could read them.

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.
