  • Keely's rating of the film Juan

    I've long been a fan of musicals; 'Juan' might end up responsible for making me an opera fan as well. Cleverly updating and condensing the story of Mozart's brilliant 'Don Giovanni', 'Juan' alters the fates of several characters but preserves the spirit of the narrative. The cast's voices soar as they recite the updated and anglicized lyrics, the translation of which has been (for the most part) beautifully handled.
