Don Juan DeMarcoDirector: Jeremy Leven
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. Don Juan DeMarco's theme song, "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman," became a major hit for singer and songwriter Bryan Adams; after working with Marlon Brando on this film, Johnny Depp cast the legendary actor in a key supporting role in his directorial debut, The Brave.

This movie is an extrodianry movie. Johny depp plays such a magnificent lover... such a passionate man (with a nasty habit of making half of it up) that you cant help but wonder if its all true. He truly is the 'greatest lover the world has ever seen'. I would recomend this if you are looking for a real life movie that defies real life, and sweeps you into the fantastical.
This movie is what all romances should be like. It's full of twist and turns that you just can't ignore. It is really one of Johnny Depp's truest roles. He did an amazing job along with Marlon Brando. Snaps for this one!!!
Johnny Depp in one of his finest performances. Marlon Brando jumps through the screen with wisdom, energy and understated class. Faye Dunaway is sexy, interesting and a sensuel woman through and through. Don Juan De Marco is a movie to be seen many times. Each time Johnny Depp seem to show a different perspective, a different approach and a different version of the legendary Don Juan De Marco. Showing that he can match the amazing Marlon Brando in each and every scene they share - Johnny Depp, even then, proved that he (as well as Marlon Brando) are among te chosen few whose talents are above and beyond what most actors can even dream of achieving.
I enjoyed this movie when it was first issued because of the performance by Marlon Brando and because of the theme song, "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman." Though Marlon Brando was 'way past playing leading man roles, his performance here was very appealing on a more mature level, and Faye Dunaway was graceful in her role of the pleasantly surprised wife of a man of retirement age whose sexual interest in him and in their relationship is revived. Johnny Depp was believable as Don Juan de Marco, a gentle and passionate lover of over 1000 needy women. The theme song added so much to the story, as theme songs should. All in all, a very entertaining though under-appreciated movie.
This is the movie where I first fell in love with Johnny Depp. Just as Fail Safe is a movie that all world politicians should be required to view, Don Juan DeMarco is a film that every man should see. For they need to "really, really, really, . . . really, really, really love a woman."
Johnny Depp does such wonderful acting on this film. He is extremely sexy as well. you will fall under don juan's spell too. He is the greatest lover in the world period.
