Considered by Frederico Fellini to be his most expressive and courageous work, this epic portrait of the world's greatest lover stars Donald Sutherland (KLute, Don't Look Now) in one of his most acclaimed roles, and showcases the colourful, bawdy, grandiloquent flights of imagination typical of Fellini's great cinematic spectacles. Rather than a dashing seducer, Fellini introduces a jaded, cynical, aging Casonova hungrily scouring the opulent boudiors of eighteenth-century Venice in an attempt to satisfy his insatiable sexual appetite - and as a man whose sexual conquests come to represent severe self-loathing. Boasting lush widescreen cinematography, sumptuous studio sets and lavish Oscar-winning costumes, this vision of the life of a philandering dilettante remains one of the great Fellini film experiences.
