Don Juan Demarco

Synopsis: Well-respected psychiatrist Dr. Jack Mickler is only 10 days away from his retirement. A week before he is due to leave, he encounters a young man who attempts suicide--would be a pretty straightforward case except the young man claims to be Don Juan, the fabled Spanish nobleman and world renowned seducer/lover of woman. Despite original hostility from his co-workers, Jack manages to persuade his associates to put the youth in his care for 10 days after which the youth will undergo an evaluation to be either released from psychiatric care or sent to a mental institution. However, as the 10 days progresses, Dr. Mickler and the other staff become gradually drawn into to the young man's exotic world of love, passion and pleasure as he recounts his story to them. Whilst doing so the man's philosophies and zeal for life and love begins to revive Dr. Mickler's somewhat passionless relationship with his wife, Marilyn as well as challenging his own views and ethics to the point where both he a

My name is Don Juan DeMarco.

I am the son of the great swordsman...

...Antonio Garibaldi DeMarco...

...who was tragically killed|defending the honor of my mother...

...the beautiful Doa Inez|Santiago y San Martine.

I am the world's greatest lover.

I have made love|to over a thousand women.

I was 21 last Tuesday.

- Good evening, sir.|- Good evening, Nicholas.

No woman has ever|left my arms unsatisfied.

Only one has rejected me,|and as fortune would have it...

...she is the only one|who has ever mattered.

This is why, at 21, I have|determined to end my life.

But first...|one final conquest.

May I?

Well, actually, I'm expecting a friend.

He's been delayed,|but he should be here soon.

Well, I will not linger.

I am Don Juan.

That's very funny. Is there|a costume party at the hotel?

No, I am Don Juan...

...directly descended|from the noble Spanish family.

And you seduce women.

No, I never take advantage of a woman.

I give women pleasure...

...if they desire it.

It is of course the greatest pleasure|they will ever experience.

There are some women...


...a certain texture to their hair...

...a curve to the ears that...

...that sweeps like the turn of a shell.

These women...

...have fingers with the same|sensitivities as their legs.

The fingertips have the same|feelings as their feet.

And when you touch their knuckles... is like passing your hands|around their knees.

And this tender,|fleshy part of the finger... the same as brushing|your hands around their thighs.

And, finally...

Every woman is a mystery to be solved...

...but a woman hides nothing|from a true lover.

Her skin color can tell us|how to proceed.

A hue like the blush of a rose,|pink and pale...

...and she must be coaxed|to open her petals...

...with a warmth like the sun.

The pale and dappled skin|of a redhead...

...calls for the lust of a wave|crashing to the shore... we may stir up|what lies beneath...

...and bring the foamy delight|of love to the surface.

Although there is no metaphor...

...that truly describes|making love to a woman...

...the closest is playing|a rare musical instrument.

I wonder...|does a Stradivarius violin...

...feel the same rapture|as the violinist...

...when he coaxes a single|perfect note from its heart?

Muchas gracias, seorita.

Every true lover knows...

...that the moment|of greatest satisfaction...

...comes when ecstasy is long over...

...and he beholds|before him the flower...

...which has blossomed|beneath his touch.

Sorry I'm late, honey.|It was unavoidable.

I hope you went ahead without me.

Oh, well.

Now I must die.

- Hey.|- Evening, Jack.

How you doing?

You're putting on a little weight here.

You know... and me been going|to the same bakery.

Sorry to do this to you, Jack...

...but this is a job that only|Supershrink can handle.

He's a jumper to be|reckoned with, I'm telling you.

What's the costume?

He's Don Juan.

He wishes to end his life gloriously.

He wants us to send|our finest swordsman... do battle with him...

...preferably...|preferably Don Francisco da Silva.

Did he actually say this?

I was up there.

I tell you.|How do you get in this?

Over here.

Are you sure this is how Freud started?

What do I know?|I'm just the dumb cop.

You're the shrink.

Where is Don Francisco da Silva?|I will fight none other.

- Where is he?|- Don Francisco da Silva...

...left for Mallorca on this weekend...

...but I am his uncle|Don Octavio del Flores.

This will not do.

I must die at the hands|of Don Francisco.

I am Don Juan DeMarco.

Lord Byron

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824), known as Lord Byron, was a British nobleman, poet, peer, politician, and leading figure in the Romantic movement. He is regarded as one of the greatest British poets and remains widely read and influential. Among his best-known works are the lengthy narrative poems Don Juan and Childe Harold's Pilgrimage as well as the short lyric poem "She Walks in Beauty". He travelled extensively across Europe, especially in Italy, where he lived for seven years in the cities of Venice, Ravenna and Pisa. During his stay in Italy he frequently visited his friend and fellow poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Later in life Byron joined the Greek War of Independence fighting the Ottoman Empire, for which Greeks revere him as a national hero. He died in 1824 at the age of 36 from a fever contracted in Missolonghi. Often described as the most flamboyant and notorious of the major Romantics, Byron was both celebrated and castigated in his life for his aristocratic excesses, which included huge debts, numerous love affairs with both men and women, as well as rumours of a scandalous liaison with his half-sister. One of his lovers, Lady Caroline Lamb, summed him up in the famous phrase "mad, bad, and dangerous to know". His only legitimate child, Ada Lovelace, is regarded as the first computer programmer based on her notes for Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine. Byron's illegitimate children include Allegra Byron, who died in childhood, and possibly Elizabeth Medora Leigh. more…
