“Viva la libertà!” Alone in a remote castle, Giacomo Casanova lets out a shout and collapses. When a former lover, the writer Elisa von der Recke, comes to visit, her presence stirs new life in the old man. A film that grasps the myth of the great seducer in fictional stories and opera performances, and reveals his adventures, passions, and last but not least, also his fear of death. (Production notes)
