[REVIEW] Casanova

The plot of the new film Casanova could well have been provocative as well as entertaining. Imagine if the ardent desire for seduction and companionship demonstrated by Heath Ledger's Giacomo Casanova had been merged with the articulate proto-feminism of Sienna Miller's Francesca Bruni somehow, perhaps by arguing that Casanova's techniques of individualized seduction could come to full fruition only if he could treat with a fully auonomous woman. The plot didn't do that, as it happens, the result being a film that looks nice and has some entertaining scenes but that doesn't hang together.
