Audience Reviews for Le Casanova de Fellini

Never had a Fellini film looked so incredibly stunning as this gorgeous period drama/character study that, even though a bit overlong, has the kind of episodic structure typical of Fellini but all the more suitable here for a story about a pitiful man who goes from one bed adventure to the next in his sterile life.

Fellini's luxuriant, sardonic picture, is a great account of human sexuality, impotence and our basest instincts and desires, with a sublime performance from Donald Sutherland.

What happens when you put "La Dolce Vita," "Satyricon," and "Giulietta degli Spiriti" into a blender and mold the remnants around the pseudobiopic of an 18th century libertine? You get "Fellini's Casanova," that's what! Although many consider "Amarcord" to be Fellini's last great film, he knocks it out of the ballpark with the phantasmal, anachronistic, decadent, Jungian, social commentary/character study "Casanova." The film is an intoxicating Frankenstein of "Satyricon"s lush, colorful, malodorous, visual richness juxtaposed in a decaying culture, "La Dolce Vita"s portrayal of a man unable to love and whose quixotic dreams of artistic respect is only undermined by his myopic debauchery, and "Giulietta degli Spiriti"s glorious overabundance of Jungian associations which blur the lines between fantasy and reality. You can even throw in some "8 1/2" in there; the bottom line is that Fellini has presented us yet another masterpiece overflowing with his style and trademarks. Granted, I'll admit that this film obviously does not reach the lofty heights of any of the aforementioned films it borrows so heavily from (which is still all from the mind and experiences of Fellini,) perhaps with the exception of "Satyricon." And, in hindsight, it becomes potent that this picture is reserved only for the fans. However, if you happen to love Fellini you'll have a great time watching this magnificent film where he is at his most indulgent, unrestrained, and freelance. I also, personally, consider this to be his most surreal film, considering how he somehow managed to convincingly turn Donald Sutherland, Conrad Jarrett's tenderly loving father, into an androgynous womanizing sexual deviant.
