Quotes

[Casanova enters the confessional and crosses himself]
Giacomo Casanova: Bless me father, for I have sinned. Again. Um, I don't know where to start, um. It's money, father, er, love of money is a sin, isn't it?
Priest: A grave sin.
Giacomo Casanova: I, I don't love it as such, but I need it, is that a sin?
Priest: In too great a measure then, yes.
Giacomo Casanova: It's not for me. You see, there's this woman, um, and I suppose you can include lustful thoughts while you're at it...
[the priest nods]
Giacomo Casanova: Er, there's this woman, but she's engaged, and all this went on ...

Nothing is perfect, but this comes close.
22 February 2007 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to catch this on television one evening, right out of the blue.

Normally I don't watch much TV, but this came on following some programme that was playing to itself and it grabbed me almost instantly with its humour.

Being broadcast on Finnish television over two evenings, I was agog to see the second part, for the first half of this one was touching, funny, and so uniquely entertaining - with a brilliant cast to boot!

By the end of the entire thing, I felt a strange sensation within me: INSPIRATION.

Oddly enough, some American-produced film based on the same individual came out not long after, with some daft Australian actor at the helm. That piece was pretty hyped-up and well marketed, being released into cinemas rather than straight to TV.

I've not seen this other "version" and don't intend to ever - I've heard enough about to to know that it couldn't possibly stand up to the challenge of comparison I'd be making whilst watching it.

Read other reviews if you want to get a plot over-view; this article is simply to sing the praises for what was a beautiful, witty and powerful piece of film - recommended viewing for all!

Now: if only it had been THIS film that had the backing of millions of Hollywood cash...
