      paul d Mario Monicelli's Casanova '70 is an outrageous, inventive and wonderful farce, a sex comedy that could only be Italian. Marcello Mastroianni is an Italian officer, a playboy who suddenly becomes impotent. He cannot deal with the sexual freedom of women in the mid 1960s, because sex is available too easily, without struggle or conquest. After consulting a psychiatrist, his only hope for arousal is to face grave danger to win a woman's intimacy. What follows is his raucous pursuit of a series of beautiful women, running ever more dangerous feats. Mastroianni is a brilliant peacock, strutting around for two hours in a series of impeccably tailored outfits that leave him as much the center of attention as the beautiful women he's chasing. The scenes are shot all over Italy, with one location more beautiful than the next, and even the barren lands around a chemical refinery provide scenes of magical slapstick. The ending is thoughtful, indulgent and completely over-the-top. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 60er jahre klamotte, die heutzutage nicht mehr so richtig funktioniert aber immerhin spass macht Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A cute italian film about a Nato Agent who just can't live without women, many women, very comical, 4 stars Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member 2.5: Pretty light and frothy fun, that is indeed fun for the most part. Basically, it's interesting to see Mastroianni play a famous lover with so many psychological issues. You don't get much more iconic than him, at least when it comes to Italian or European cinema. Updating the story for the 1970's was a stroke of genius as well, although I don't think it is necessarily handled in the best manner. They could have played up this angle a bit more. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member engraçadíssimo ver um "casanova" trazido à era contemporânea que apresenta todos os problemas que um conquistador pode ter quando visto sob a ótica da ciência (o cúmulo da modernidade, né?): impotência x perversão sexual haha.
