Casanova

Wah! This should've been included in the Late Movie Review Marathon entry, but I completely forgot about it! I only remembered that I saw this movie too when I saw my sister's blog and she had a review. Well, I guess that just goes to show that this movie really didn't make an impression on me.

Don't get me wrong, I like Heath Ledger. It's just that his recent films have been so... Well, let's just say that save for A Knight's Tale, I'm not too crazy about his 'renaissance-man' look.

I don't really know the story of Casanova but based on this movie, it seems like fun. If only they'd made everything that happened more orderly. Perhaps it was confusing because their dialogue was difficult to understand because they were using olde English, or because the set was too cluttered -- there were too many people in one scene, too many objects (i.e. paintings, boats, boxes, even animals), and too much movement, after a while it all kind of hurts your eyes. Maybe it was better to have seen this movie on the television, or maybe the cinema we saw it in just sucked. But still, I think they all could've done much better because the material they were given was pretty good.

The ideas were good, the casting was fine, the music was nice, and perhaps the dialogue has some merits too if it was more understandable. Too bad the other elements were bad enough to pull the whole movie down.

And by the way, I really don't get why Candy Magazine recommends this movie to be seen with a "torpeng manliligaw", because I really didn't see any material in it that would help girls with that.

i think they were going for realism on all the too-many-things-and-people-in-one-scene shot..

i dunno, p&p pulled it off
