Storyline

The Italian adventurer and libertine Giovanni Jacopo Casanova lived from 1725 to 1798, but in this six-part series Dennis Potter attempted to find a contemporary relevance through his central themes of sex and religion. He commented that Casanova "was concerned with religious and sexual freedom, and these are the things we have to address ourselves to now." Casanova was imprisoned in Venice in 1755, and Potter used that event as a central device, constantly inter-cutting to contrast Casanova's amorous escapades, radiant, joyful and brightly lit, with his oppressive solitary confinement in the gloom of a half-darkened cell.

DVD available, need foreign player, U.S. release (hope for)
25 October 2004 | by (st. louis, mo) – See all my reviews

To the person who asked if the above mentioned was available in video. It is, from Amazon.com, UK. The only problem is that it's playable only on foreign DVD players, as it's in the PAL format, not NTSC, for North America. Here's hoping one day that they'd make a version for sale in the U.S.. Hope it helps. It was certainly better than the "TV movie" with Richard Chamberlin (I think I might have his name wrong). They never showed it in St. Louis (as I had to see it as a fuzzy copy from a tv station in Illinois and I never got to see it all from the beginning). I would hope that when, and if, it would be released for sale, in the U.S., that they would release it in the full (uncut) version, as many times, they don't (as will feature films).
