FELLINI’S CASANOVA

Il Casanova di Federico Fellini

Federico Fellini | 1976 | 155 MINS
Italy | Subtitles
The myth of Giacomo Casanova, the notorious womaniser, is presented as a pitiable and terrifying figure. A sex scandal lands him in prison, but an escape to Paris provides him a new lease of life.

In Detail

Fellini’s version of Casanova possesses a rare visual daring and imagination. The film features a breath-taking performance from the sultry Sutherland as the original playboy in his latter days as he travels through Europe engaging in a variety of amorous adventures which mostly take place in 18th century Italy.

Giacomo Casanova is a modestly wealthy adventurer who leads a futile existence; his only strengths lie in seduction and sexual performance. His life becomes increasingly meaningless as lovers slip away. The film is loosely based on the biography by Giacomo Casanova himself, although, like all of Fellini's literary adaptations (post ‘8 ½’), the film is decorated with a wreath of absurdity.
