Description

The decline and fall of the famous libertine."The crazy life and courageous death of a man who loved women too much to want only one."

Don Juan is a passionate lover of life and nearly 1,000 women. One night, the Commendatore of Calatrava catches him kissing his daughter, and challenges him to a duel. Don Juan wins the duel, which of course means that the Commendatore is slain-and so begins the end for the incorrigible seducer.
