Offered up, through Brechtian interludes, as ‘a comedy,’ this droll variation on the story of Don Juan sees the legendary lover (Kulle) sent back from hell by Satan to seduce a parson’s chaste daughter (Andersson) who’s about to wed. Ingeniously plotted, beautifully acted, and stylised to emphasise its own theatrical artifice, it’s an amusing, incisive and finally affecting study of the vicissitudes of human love.
