* HolierThanThou: The Inquisitor Pucci, played by Creator/JeremyIrons. Rather than speaking about forgiveness, redemption, or any attempt to save the souls of those ostensibly under his care as a member of the Church, Pucci's goals all seem to revolve around control. There also appears to be an entire order of nuns willing to add another notch to Casanova's bedpost. When admonished for risking (or perhaps earning, in the eyes of the inquisitor), eternal damnation for a single night with Casanova, the response is "seems fair."

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: The movie (set in 18th century Venice) features an emancipated female scientist, who writes books and, as it seems, invented the hot-air balloon. Somewhat justified in that the other characters don't accept her. (Though although the character is fictional, Emilie du Chatelet, Voltaire's mistress, is an example of a real person like this, whose writings included the definitive French translation of Newton's {{Principia}}).

''Casanova'' is another approximation of the Casanova myth, this time in a rom-com style with Creator/HeathLedger playing the titular character and directed in 2005 by Lasse Hallström of ''Film/{{Chocolat}}'' fame. It also stars Sienna Miller as Francesca, Charlie Cox as Giovanni, Oliver Platt as Paprizzio, Lena Olin as Ms. Bruni and Creator/JeremyIrons as inquisitor Pucci.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Shy, clumsy Giovanni loses his virginity to an entire brothel - for free, because he's apparently just that good - and becomes badass by the next morning.

It's the year 1753. Giacomo Casanova is waiting for a promise made by his mother several years ago. Meanwhile, he spends big time in Venice as an infamous lover and seducer for several ladies, something that the Church has not tolerated for a long time. When Casanova is finally apprehended, his friend and protector the Doge has had enough of his cheekiness and gives him one chance for redemption by finding a decent woman and marry. He finds a good chance with the "pure" daughter of Mr. Donato, Victoria, who actually lusts for him every time.

Things do not go well when he meets a beautiful but ahead of her time woman named Francesca Bruni, who despises what Casanova is doing, and begins to slowly fall in love. It happens that she has arranged a marriage with a man she never met, Paprizzio a butter merchant from Genova, and that he thinks she has an affair with a prominent philosopher called Bernardo Guardi. Also, her clumsy brother Giovanni is jealous of him for conquering the heart of Victoria, with whom he had been in love for some time. Casanova unwillingly must impersonate several people, including Paprizzio and Guardi, and use the picaresque in order to get closer to Francesca. Also, the Church has sent a more cruel inquisitor to Venice to stop Casanova's schemes. HilarityEnsues.
