Quotes

Giacomo Casanova: This blessed plot, this sceptred isle, this England. What do you think?
Rocco: Bloody freezing.
Giacomo Casanova: Yeah that's one thing, what else? Jack - anything? Anything, Jack? Then pay attention both of you, English lesson. The currency's different here, they spend guinea's. Scratching in public is forbidden, that's for you Rocko. But not that - look over there, observe.

Hilarious
9 October 2006 | by laughing_catSee all my reviews

I turned on PBS last night and ran into this movie completely by accident. I was hooked immediately. It is so funny and unusual. The fact that everything happens to the young Casanova by chance is one of the things that makes it good. He is goofy, low-born, and self-effacing, as opposed to Heath Ledger's smug, overly confident Casanova in the film recently in theaters (which I found very boring.) This CASANOVA is definitely worth my time and yours. The supporting characters are enjoyable and the sets and costumes are amazing, full of color and authenticity. It was a spectacle for the ears and the eyes, I especially liked the colorfest during Casanova and Bellino's ball. Enjoy!
