I read here that in the USA this film got an R rating, not PG-13, as ¨director Hallstr?m wanted, only because of something that is suggested is happening under a table. In the Netherlands, where it had it's premiere yesterday, the rating is for over 5 year olds, so that says enough for whom this movie really is. I was at first a little disappointed to find out that this is not a historical movie, but a slapstick comedy, but I loved the settings (Venice and Vicenza,where they made a scene in the famous Teatro Olimpico, which is supposed to be a Venice University in the movie) and the music which is mostly baroque (Vivaldi, Albinoni, H?ndel, Rameau, Paisiello and a few more) and as a baroque music lover I thoroughly enjoyed the movie just only for the music alone. This must be one of the first-ever costume farce movies, but if you forget all the movies like Shakespeare in love or Pride and Prejudice and take this movie for it's own merits, it is a thoroughly rewarding experience. There was a lot of laughing by the audience and I found myself laughing more than in any movie I remember. It is thoroughly entertaining from first to last minute, but devout Catholics will find it insulting, as it makes fun of the Catholic Church, but it should be quite evident to everyone, also devout catholics, that the story is not to be taken too seriously, so why being bothered by it? The movie can actually be considered as a modern version of an opera buffa. Obviously there is a romantic plot and by all the farce and hilariousness I would say that the romantic element gets snowed under, but, as said, you have to accept this movie for what it is and concentrate on the lavish settings, costumes, music, the fun, and you will want to see it many more times, like me.

Great fun, wonderful settings and music, for all agesReviewed byTon van der VeldenVote: 10/10
This movie was an excellent movie. I came into the theater expecting a good movie, and left the theater with my expectations having been surpassed.
It was funnier than I thought; but the humor was not all that made this movie excellent. Heath Ledger played the lady-charmer Casanova wonderfully, showing insight into why so many women would fall for this man, and how he escaped being caught before.
This movie is rated R, but with barely any reason for it - don't feel unable to bring your preteens to this film, because there is no nudity, only hints of sex scenes, and really, that is not the focus of this film. This film focuses on a man who had a superficial idea of love, and how he discovers what true love is - and the adventures and trials he goes through in the discovery.
All the actors did a great job in this movie, in my opinion. The costumes are lovely, the scenery lavish Venice, and the dialog so enchanting, the movie would not have been at all as delightful without such witty dialog.
There is suspense in this movie as, again and again, you think that Casanova will be caught in his tricks, and wonder at his ability to not be caught. The chase scenes are original, the epiphanies and romance grin-inducing, and the ending is absolutely superb.
Go to this movie if you are not a historical nitpick and simply want to have a good time seeing a good movie. It's a fun one!
A competently handled piece of entertaining fluff, but little more. Everything looks incredible, with the lightness and clarity of a Canaletto, and Beavan brings her usual eye for detail to the costume design. The script is full of mistaken identities, secret aliases, crude innuendo and romantic misunderstandings ? all the finest clichés, in fact, of period comedy. The actors do well in roles that expect little from them, with Ledger successfully playing Casanova against expectations, but Platt and Irons stand out, at times stealing the whole show.
An attractive, if forgettable movie, that will be of interest more to fans of the 18th century than fans of fine films.
