JUAN is director Kasper Holten's take on Mozart's timeless masterpiece "Don Giovanni". In this contemporary cinematic version we follow Juan - a celebrated artist and notorious playboy through an endless stream of conquests and betrayals of women. By ruthless exploitation of innocent females, Juan wants to turn his love life into a megalomanic work of art. His restless appetite for life and sex drives him onto a destructive path, to a point where he realizes that if his life is a work of art, then there is only one way to finish his masterpiece.
