'I, Don Giovanni' to open Malaga fest

Carlos Saura's film played Toronto last year

MADRID -- Carlos Saura's "I, Don Giovanni" will open the official section at the 13th Malaga Spanish Film Festival, organizers announced Tuesday.

Produced by Andres Vicente Gomez, the film stars Lorenzo Balducci, Lino Guanciale and Tobias Moretti in an historic drama set in Vienna and focused on Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, a priest exiled from Venice for lascivious behavior, as they work together on the "Don Giovanni" opera.

Saura's film, which ran in Toronto last year, will run out of competition at the festival, which runs April 17-24 on Spain's Mediterranean Costa del Sol.
