Thirteen years later, in the midst of political and economical problems, Charles II asks for the return of his friend John Wilmot, aka the second Earl of Rochester, from exile back to London. John is a morally-corrupt drunkard and a sexually- active cynical poet. When the King asks John to prepare a play for the French ambassador so as to please him, John meets the aspiring actress Elizabeth Barry in the playhouse and decides to make her into a great star. He falls in love with her and she becomes his mistress. During the presentation to the Frenchman, he falls into disgrace with the court. When he was thirty-three years old and dying of syphilis and alcoholism, he converts to being a religious man. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Libertine was a brilliant period piece. It was a tragically
realistic yet witty and humorous look at the Restoration period in
England, but more specifically depicted the latter stages of the life
of the Second Earl Of Rochester, a poet, who endured a short and
debauched life. Here was a man so highly intelligent, yet so bored with
life that he thrived by consistently pushing his limits and the
boundaries of his relationships.
Johnny Depp eloquently and emotionally portrayed the Earl of Wilmot.
This has to be by far his most brilliant achievement in a long line of
unique and amazing performances. Mr. Depp's portrayal of the Earl
showed a range of emotions, incredible nuances and a depth of empathy
never before seen on screen, best illustrated during the scene where
The Earl addresses parliament - which has to be the most gut wrenching
scene, rife with fervor but with credibility. Suffice it to say by the
end of this movie I had been reduced to tears and cheers, both at times
coinciding. This is definitely an Oscar worthy performance. The golden
statue is a must.
The supporting cast was also excellent; most notably, the actor who
played the Earl's servant, and who appeared to have a great rapport
with Mr. Depp, on screen. Samantha Morton, also superb as Mrs. Barry,
gave a lovely and unobtrusive performance as was required for this
Laurence Dunmore captured the atmosphere of the period exquisitely with
simplicity yet with a keen eye to detail. The reproduction of the
'family' Portrait of the Earl with the monkey is an excellent example.
The lighting, the sets, the costumes all added to the reality of the
movie. The musical score by Michael Nyman beautifully augmented the
spirit of the times and of this production.
The Libertine was a work in progress when I viewed it twice at the
Toronto Film Fest. I cannot imagine a scene being cut; even the more
risqué dreams are required to impart the true emotional state of the
Earl at that time in his life. Before passing judgment on this film I
suggest that one see it at least twice so as to appreciate the full
impact of the movie to fully identify with the meaning and the
thought behind this production.
The Libertine is a wonderful piece of art, representing the true raison
d'être of this poet with incredible wit and insight. Congratulations to
all who graced the production of the Libertine.
