Cast: Donald Sutherland, Tina Aumont, Cicely Browne, Carmen Scarpitta

Plot: The movie was adapted from the autobiography of Giacomo Casanova, the 18th-century adventurer and writer. Shot entirely at the Cinecittà studios in Rome, it portrays Casanova's life as a journey into sexual abandonment. The narrative presents Casanova's adventures in a detached, methodical fashion, as the respect for which he yearns is constantly undermined by his more basic urges.

The movie won an Oscar in 1977 for Best Costume Design.
