Casanova Movie On The Way

I just found this interesting tid-bit about a new movie regarding the world famous seducer Casanova…

BEIJING, Sept. 5 — He was a libertine and intellectual, a seducer,
spy and seminarian, an adventurer and fugitive from justice. Now
Giacomo Casanova is also funny, self-sacrificing, writhing in the
throes of love and — because this is history Hollywood-style — a
character with a happy ending.

    The Australian actor Heath Ledger plays the insatiable
lover in big trouble in Lasse Hallstrom’s “Casanova,” a clever, often
madcap comedy that happily doesn’t let the real life facts of the 18th
century Venetian get in the way of a very funny story line.

    Ledger has been all over the screens at the Venice Film
Festival. Last Thursday, his performance as a homosexual cowboy
wrestling with his desires in Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain” wowed

    “The real Casanova was a man who had a true understanding
of women and had an uncanny ability to get into the minds of women,”
Hallstrom said at a news conference ahead of Saturday night’s premiere.
“And that’s what I wanted to keep about Casanova in this film.”

    Ledger said he did research his character — to a point.

    “I flipped through his journals and then it was (history)
out the window,” Ledger said. “We were making it into a romp. We wanted
to have a clean slate and just have fun.”

    For Hallstrom, whose credits include “Cider House Rules”
and “Chocolat,” making “Casanova” was a welcome chance to return to his
roots in TV comedy in Sweden.

    “The real Casanova is a wonderful idea for another movie,”
the director said. “He was such a multi-talented man — writer,
musician, priest, philosopher, scientist.”

    The actors’ accents range from proper English to something
close to thick New Yorker, but the illogic just blends into all the
snappy-paced, steady fun.

    What Hallstrom was intent on making authentic was Venice’s opulent yet earthy 18th century atmosphere.

    He succeeded, thanks in large measure to Venice, which
allowed the cast and crew access to just about everywhere they wanted,
from St. Mark’s Square to palaces never before opened for filming.

Notice that Casanova wasn’t JUST a seducer?  He had many interests and lived a full and exciting life.  Remember that going out to pick-up women is okay to a certain extent, but never let it defite who you are.
