Sex is Casanova’s lifeblood and his life is dedicated to pleasure. But one thing eludes him throughout his life – perfect happiness with his one true love, Henriette.
Starring David Tennant (Dr Who, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Peter O-Toole and Rose Byrne, this fast paced and edgy drama alternates between the gripping love triangle involving the young Casanova, Henriette and her husband Grimani, and the swan song moments of the world’s greatest lothario. Casanova takes us from the decadent streets of 18th Century Venice to the pre-evolution Paris, and on to the London courts of George III.
In the Age of Reason and Science, gambling and gallantries, of pleasure and entertainment, Casanova has it all, does it all. 44 years later, Casanova, a librarian in a castle, exiled from Venice is dying. Into his life comes Edith, a young parlour maid who ignites the old passion in Casanova and he finds himself regaling her with tales of his adventures.
