Casanova is a hedonist who collects seductions and sexual accomplishments.
But is he actually interested in someone, and is he a fascinating person? Is he still alive? Casanova is a 1976 Italian film directed by Federico Fellini that is based on the memoirs of Giacomo Casanova, an 18th-century adventurer, and writer. The film earned an Academy Award for Best Costume Design, which went to Danilo Donati, who worked solely at the Cinecittà studios in Rome. Casanova’s life is portrayed in the film as a path to sexual abandonment. Casanova’s escapades are presented in a distant, logical manner, while the respect for which he yearns is repeatedly undercut by his more primal desires.
