Screen adapatation of Mozart's opera. Don Giovanni, the infamous womanizer, makes one conquest after another until the ghost of Donna Anna's father, the Commendatore, (whom Giovanni killed) makes his appearance. He offers Giovanni one last chance to repent for his multitudinous improprieties.
"Making a film of an opera, as opposed to recording an opera production on film, is a notoriously difficult art. Only a handful of directors have managed to escape the tyranny of an invisible stage proscenium on screen... One near perfect amalgamation of opera and the screen is Joseph Losey's Don Giovanni." - Nicholas Wapshott, The New York Sun.
