    A film of rare visual daring and imagination in which each frame is meticulously and attentively designed, Fellini`s Casanova is amongst Italian maestro Federico Fellini`s most sumptuous productions. In an astonishing piece of screen acting, Donald Sutherland portrays Casanova in his waning days, travelling from a bubonic-plagued Venice to a syphilitic London and a tubercular Germany and engaging in various amorous and political adventures with an air of bored detachment. Imbued with a romantic pessimism, the film debunks the myth of Casanova as a great lover and instead presents him as an ordinary man swept along by extraordinary circumstances. Featuring a compelling and complex score by Fellini`s longstanding collaborator Nina Rota, Fellini`s Casanova also boasts Oscar winning costume designs by Danilo Donati. Filmed entirely on the lavish soundstages of Rome`s Cinecitta Studios, the film is also popularly viewed as the director`s elegiac farewell to a bygone era of Italian cinema.
