The lost diaries are a steamy chronology of the fifteenth-century libertine's determined pursuit of nuptial bliss, sans nuptials. The notorious Don Juan, who vowed never to marry, is portrayed by Scott Brick as the heroic advocate of true love and his arch enemy as a sadistic priest who relishes the cruelty and torture of the Inquisition. Scenes on the rack and in the bedroom are graphically recounted. However, Brick's characters all have the same generic Spanish accent, varying in tone exuberantly for villainy versus seduction. Brick deftly manages, without an ironic lilt, the endless sensual metaphors Abrams dishes out as Don Juan wends his way through bullfights, bedrooms, and ballrooms.
