Rating:
R

Casanova is a 2005 romantic action comedy directed by Lasse Hallstr''m starring Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller. Casanova (Ledger) is the archetypal young male seducer, well liked and respected by the city. In his natural habitat of pretty Italy, he can be seen running through the nunneries, quickly and systematically collecting the panties of many tenants, and running away from their raging jealous clenches. Casanova's escapades come to a screeching hault when he falls in love at first sight of the beautiful Francesca (Miller). Unfortunately the escapades must continue as both beauts are each betrothed to other lovers. A great many misunderstandings and comedic mistakes lead the protagonist into danger of the Catholic Church's court charges of heresy, as Casanova is believed to be the feminist author, Guardi, who is actually Francesca's nomme de plume. Much fibbing and pretending winds everybody up in a mess of a situation, but in the end, can Casanova's charm pull them all through?

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    In the exhilarating Casanova, giddy shenanigans effectively set off the dangerous, darker impulses of human nature.

    Variety Derek Elley

    A handsome chunk of widescreen entertainment that's as nimble as its rakish hero.

  • 70

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    In any case, what is on screen is a delightful respite from awards-season seriousness - a feather film, you might say, that actually tickles.
