Product DetailsStarring: Cicely Brown, John Karlsen, Carmen Scarpitta, Tina Aumont, Daniel Emilfork Berenstein, Donald Sutherland
Directed by: Federico Fellini
A film of rare visual daring and imagination in which each frame is meticulously and attentively designed, Felliniís Casanova is amongst Italian maestro Federico Felliniís most sumptuous productions. In an astonishing piece of screen acting, Donald Sutherland portrays Casanova in his waning days, travelling from a bubonic-plagued Venice to a syphilitic London and a tubercular Germany and engaging in various amorous and political adventures with an air of bored detachment. Imbued with a romantic pessimism, the film debunks the myth of Casanova as a great lover and instead presents him as an ordinary man swept along by extraordinary circumstances. Featuring a compelling and complex score by Felliniís longstanding collaborator Nina Rota, Felliniís Casanova also boasts Oscar winning costume designs by Danilo Donati. Filmed entirely on the lavish soundstages of Rome's Cinecitta Studios, the film is also popularly viewed as the directorís elegiac farewell to a bygone era of Italian cinema.
