Meet Ralph, charismatic New York adman about town. Encouraged by his sexist boss and unlucky-in-love buddy Peter, Ralph's life revolves around the pursuit of the opposite sex. Enter his match, smart and beautiful account executive Elizabeth, who is put off by his sex-obsessed ways, convincing Ralph to see a therapist. Just when a relationship between the two begins to flourish, Ralph gets thrown together with supermodel Amber. Now Ralph has to decide whether to change his player-like ways or risk losing the one woman he truly loves. Written by Anonymous

Congratulations Christopher Kublan
18 January 1999 | by (Palm Springs, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Christopher Kublan's debut movie as both a writer and director is simply incredible.

Casanova Falling is a realistic view of men and their romantic fallings...

It sheds a new light on the caveman... yet goes beyond most modern comedy/romance movies as he is honest, yet does not bash his characters for thier behaviors.

It was a true blessing to see this movie at the Nortel International Film Festival in Palm Springs, CA.

Left me with a smile on my face...
