Retribution closes in on the serial seducer who has bedded and abandoned thousands of women in this sumptuous, thrillingly cinematic version of W.A. 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. The truly sexy international cast knows how to act as well as sing, and includes Christopher Maltman as Juan, Mikhail Petrenko as Leporello, Elizabeth Futral as Elvira, Maria Bengtsson as Anna, Eric Halfvarson as The Commander, Peter Lodahl as Ottavio, Katija Dragojevic as Zerlina, and Ludvig Bengtson Lindström as Masetto

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 scabrous updated libretto (sung in English, with English subtitles) would no doubt have delighted the scatologically obsessed Mozart. For a more traditional look at the composer, check out French period piece Nannerl, Mozart’s Sister, also showing in this year’s World Cinema Now lineup.
