Storyline

After many years of rambling across Europe the aging Giacomo Casanova is impoverished. He wants to return to Venice but he doesn't dare going there directly, because he was a fugitive when he left. While he tries to find a way to get a pardon he meets a young lady named Marcelina. The more he shows his affection, the more ostentatiously she rejects him. Even so he doesn't give up on her because her lover Lorenzo has grave gaming debts. In return for the required money Lorenzo tells Casanova about a looming secret rendezvous with Marcelina. Moreover he lets Casanova take his place. Undercover of the night Casanova finally seduces her. Lorenzo later feels his honor was besmirched and demands satisfaction. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

"A Man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her"
31 July 2005 | by Galina_movie_fanSee all my reviews

This movie was a real surprise for me. I've had it for several months and did not expect anything special but I was wrong. Of course, it may lack a decadent surreal grandeur of Fellini's film or unsurpassed perfection of Kubric's "Barry Lyndon" that "Casanova's Return" strangely reminds but it has the best possible actor to play the greatest lover of the 18th Century in the end of his career who tried to win one last woman - the most beautiful and the most desirable of all. Unfortunately, he made a mistake to desperately fell in love with her for the first time in his life. "A Man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her" – the famous seducer forgot this simple rule and had to face the burning humiliation and disappointment that lead to the tragic end.

Earthy humor, subtle irony, high drama, interesting characters, fine script and above everything, Alain Delon's command of the screen make "Casanova's Return" one of the underrated gems of the European Cinema.
