Retribution closes in on the serial seducer who has bedded and abandoned thousands of women in this sumptuous, thrillingly cinematic version of Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni. One of the composer’s most darkly seductive scores is performed here by Concerto Copenhagen, under the baton of maestro Lars Ulrik Mortensen. Debuting filmmaker Kasper Holten, Artistic Director of the Danish Royal Opera, updates the action to a large modern city in the internet age, keeping his focus on the uneasy balance between artist and infamous playboy Juan’s sexual instinct and destructive drive. The film was shot in Budapest.
