Giacomo Casanova, an elderly librarian in a castle in Bohemia, has a lot of memories, which he shares with Edith , a young servant. This takes us into the world of the young Casanova, a dashing Venetian chancer and outlaw who tumbles the ladies of Europe in an astonishing career. But for most of his wandering life, Casanova carries a torch for Henriette, who was snatched from him long ago by his rival Grimani... and for fifty years, Henriette does her best to look after Casanova, even though in all that time they never meet again.
Casanova, living on his wits and as a mystic, does a good deed and comes into a fortune. Bragadin offers to adopt him and Henriette agrees to marry him. Grimani, enraged, has Casanova arrested and charged with witchcraft, but he escapes from prison and flees Venice - taking with him Jack, his young illegitimate son by a previous liaison, and Rocco, his servant. Casanova heads for Paris, as he knows that Venetian ambassadors abroad are able to grant pardons.Watch Now:Amazon
