    [O'Toole's] Casanova may have lust in his heart, but it's his love for Henriette... that guides his life and makes the tale worth the telling. [6 Oct 2006, p.64]
  2. A playful pastiche of clashing styles.
  3. When you’ve got Peter O’Toole in a Masterpiece Theatre mini-series, who cares how many liberties teleplaywright Russell T. Davies took with the confabulations of Giovanni Giacomo Casanova?
  4. It does have a lively pace, a warm spirit, a contagious sense of fun, some very pretty 18th-century European settings and Peter O’Toole as the title character in his later years.
