Casanova is a famous character, not because because he achieved great things, but because he has a long list of past lovers. Heath Ledger in his prime, was a great selection for such a role thanks to his good looks and charming personality. The life of a notorious womanizer is no small task. There is a lot of potential for drama when you live and die jumping from bedroom to bedroom. The fun part of this story is how crazy things get for a man known for his lifestyle by the authorities and the women, that when he finally meets the love of his life, it will take everything he’s got to convince her he’s a changed man. In what would seem like a rather dull movie, is actually entertaining and unpredictable. While you wait for the shoe to drop and his world to come crashing down, you are left to wonder what will happen to this one and that one. Who will win, the authorities or our hero. He’s not a hero for his lifestyle, more of a hero for going against the system and expected way of life for the time period. 6/10
