Mini series: Casanova
Directed by: Simon Langton
Length 1st Season: 3x60
Synopsis: The story begins with Casanova, the great Italian lover, landing in prison where he reminisces about some of the highlights of his life.
The film traces Casanova´s life from his teenage years, as he struggles with the attempt to find a career that suits him, and his early romantic scrapes, to the older and more experienced Casanova, as he lives through adventure after adventure, especially those dealing with women and fortune. Finally, in Bohemia, he settles down to a peaceful old age, and writes his memoirs.
Soldier, spy, diplomat, writer, adventurer, chiefly remembered from his autobiography, which has established his reputation as the most famous erotic hero. Casanova´s memoirs are an unreliable account of his adventures with 122 women - according to his own counts - but they also provide an intimate portrait of the manners and life in the 18th century.
