    The first half was very interesting, each little story of Casanova's conquest showing his true "love" for the women he had encountered in his life.

    A fast, swinging, roller coaster ride of a story, full of visual thrills and chills. Loads of fun with riveting performances by Peter O'Toole and David Tennant.

    Not spectacular but pretty entertaining. The performances are solid and the story flows pretty well. If the movie has a weakness, it is a dated look and feel...this feels like something from the 1970s and not the 21st century.

    I am 82 and enjoyed every minute of it - who cares whether it follows the legend or not?

    [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 second half that bogs down and suspect chemistry will deter some viewers from finding out what really happened at the end of Casanova's days.
  3. A playful pastiche of clashing styles.
