MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Don Juan DeMarco

A psychiatrist treats a most unusual patient, only to find that the doctor is the one who gains the most from their sessions in this philosophical romantic comedy.

A young man in a mask and cape (played by Johnny Depp) is standing atop a billboard, threatening to jump. When the potential suicide is finally talked down, he’s brought to a psychiatric facility where after one doctor washes his hands of the case, he’s placed under the supervision of Dr. Jack Mickler (Marlon Brando), an aging psychiatrist soon to retire.

The patient informs Mickler that he is actually the great lover Don Juan, who has seduced over 1,500 women, but has fallen into a deep depression after being unable to win the hand of the woman of his dreams.

Mickler has ten days to work with “Don Juan,” after which he will either be released on medication or committed to a long-term stay in a mental hospital. As Mickler talks with the young man, who speaks rapturously of the art of love, the doctor finds that his philosophies are helping to kick-start his failing relationship with his wife (Faye Dunaway), and he slowly becomes convinced that his patient might really be Don Juan after all.

    • Thank you Samantha. When I came across that “Speaking Seven Languages” video, I just knew I had to use it even if it didn’t go with this week’s theme, but I guess I could have tied it in with “the languages of love” or something like that.

      We just returned from San Antonio. I probably should have scheduled the trip to coincide with Valentine’s Day 🙂

      Speaking of Valentine’s Day, Happy Valentine’s Day to you Samantha. I don’t know if they have that holiday in Holland.
