1.0 out of 5 stars More heartless, witless Tripe by Russell T Davies, 20 Feb 2008
By 
This review is from: Casanova [2005] [DVD] (DVD)
I really went into this wanting to like it, but when I realized he was the writer I wasn't expecting much, and that's what I got. I LOVE the cast, and the original diaries this is based upon. OTHER THAN THAT, it was nausiating fluff with no nudity, no substance and no interest for me anyway. Maybe I'm just bias from watching the BRILLIANT Fellini version or the more acurate Dennis Potter TV movie from 1972 which had MUCH more sex, nudity, violence heart, wit and substance than this 30 years later.

It's not often a DVD gets marked down for its lack of nudity!
