Hurray for easygoing Casanova!
A smooth flowing romantic comedy, with most interesting speculations of the legendary womanizer from Venice. The colorful, cool portrait presented in this film works well, and makes for a most entertaining couple of hours, the acting is pretty fair, and the comedy mode makes it a lot less uptight than the usual soft porn approach most of the films made about him seem to have. It keeps you going and pretty soon you start cheering for his survival which continues to amaze you with every clever surprising turn. It will provably not win any academy awards, but it may be more entertaining than some of the winners! this movie is clever and entertaining, what more can you ask these days?!
well put together and a better Blu-Ray example
The movie was well written, well done, but there were minor blurs and smears in the standard DVD version, where there was just too much detail for the normal DVD player to resolve. This new Blu-Ray version takes care of that, and detail in fringe, design, fine needlework-- instead of being a blur becomes a delight.
