Joseph Losey's 1979 film adaptation of the Mozart opera Don Giovanni adheres faithfully to the original Lorenzo Da Ponte libretto, with rakish Don Giovanni (Ruggero Raimondi) putting the make on the aristocratic Dona Anna (Edda Moser). Giovanni's enemies warn him that he'll suffer mightily for his amorous escapades. And when the gates of hell open up on cue in the last act, and Don Giovanni is dragged screaming into perdition, it turns out those enemies were right. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A nearly great adaptation of Mozart's greatest opera."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"If Losey was indeed jazzed about the material, he has an awfully restrained way of showing it."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
