Description

Casanova (David Tennant, Doctor Who) takes us from the decadent streets of the 18th Century Venice to the salons of pre-revolution Paris, and on to the London courts of George III, until a trip to Naples finally breaks Casanova’s heart. In the Age of Reason and Science, gambling and gallantries, of pleasure and entertainment, Casanova has it all and does it all. In turn he is a violinist, a priest, a gambler, a lottery director and an intellectual. He is both peasant and nobleman, rich and poor. But he is one thing above all others, a lover. Sex is Casanova’s lifeblood. But he is never casual nor flippant. He loves with total commitment and total sincerity, however temporarily. He sleeps with courtesans, actresses and even a nun. His life is dedicated to pleasure. But one thing eludes him throughout his life, perfect happiness with his one true love Henriette (Laura Fraser, Breaking Bad). 44 years later, Casanova (Peter O’Toole), now a penniless librarian in a castle, meets Edith (Rose Byrne, Bridesmaids), a young parlour maid. Something in Edith ignites the old passion in Casanova and he finds himself regaling her with tales of his adventures. Fast paced and edgy, this series alternates between the gripping love triangle involving the young Casanova, the love of his life, and her husband, Grimani (Rupert Penry-Jones, Silk) and the swan song of the world’s most infamous Lothario.

Customer Reviews

Excellent portrayal of Casanova

When this came on telly I loved it so it's great to find it on iTunes. Typically of Russell T Davies, this Casanova played by David Tennant is witty, charming and full of adventure. The soundtrack is stunning, script fantastically acted and I would highly recommend this purchase.
