Fellini’s Casanova (Fellini, 1976): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 4.45pm

This Federico Fellini classic is part of the season devoted to the Italian director. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
What the world wanted from Fellini's epic account of the famous 18th-century lover (Donald Sutherland) was hardly the dark, disturbingly jaundiced, alienated view of eroticism offered here (1976). But as one of the late flowerings of the director's claustrophobic studio style at its most deliberately artificial, this is a memorable work, helped along by Nino Rota's music and Danilo Donati's Oscar-winning costumes.
Jonathan Rosenbaum

‘Sutherland's performance is the most astonishing piece of screen acting since Brando's in Last Tango in Paris’ Time Out

Here (and above) is the trailer.
