Mastrioanni is at his best. He cannot have sex unless there is danger to his life.Best scene is when a Sicilian family [owners of a restaurant where he is having lunch alone] drags a young girl to her bedroom and locks her up.Her husband of one hour has exclaimed that he wants nothing to do with her because she in not pure.Mastroianni explains to the Sicilians that he is a medical doctor and would be very happy to examine her and determine whether or not she is pure.He goes into her room and closes the door. Two hours later he emerges all sweaty, bug-eyed and shaking.He exclaims "she is pure." At about this time the real doctor arrives and the chase is on.This picture is so funny.It is as if Mastroianni is the whole Marx brothers family rolled up into one person.I really believe Mastroianni was always at his best in comedy.Especially sexual comedy, Italian style.It is a shame this film is no longer available. Someone should bring it back. It is a classic.
Although the production values are terrible (typically bizarre music of the period and washed out color), this is a droll romp that is rather quite amusing. Our hero is impotent unless there is a very real element of danger present in his wooing of women. Mastroianni is perfectly cast. The Original Story and Screenplay were deservedly Oscar nominated. Most amusing is the lecherous and bizarre psychiatrist who tries to convince Mastroianni to give up women – the good doctor has an agenda. Watch him obsessively sharpen pencils when talking of Marcello’s impotency. Also the last sequence of seduction in the decaying antique collector’s villa is a hoot. The trial for murder where Marcello defends himself against the constant barrage of the fair sex is very well done. All in all – a delight despite the poor film stock and scoring. Out of print on video, you may still find it in your local video store.
"Casanova ’70" is a colourful movie directed by Mario Monicelli, one of the Italian comedy masters. The film follows the sexual adventures of Andrea (Marcello Mastroianni), a handsome "Casanova" who thinks being impotent, in reality he only needs danger for being excited and conquer women…The film is a product of its time (we clearly see that we’re in 1965!), but it’s funny and teases the myth of Italian "macho". The merit of the picture is talking about sex without being vulgar. Mastroianni shows a comical approach and is at ease, also the rest of the cast enjoy (we see, among others, gorgeous women like Virna Lisi, Michèle Mercier and Marisa Mell…). In a role -Mell’s husband- we find Italian director Marco Ferreri, famous for "outrageous" movies like "La grande bouffe", "Tales of ordinary madness", "Bye bye Monkey" and long time friend of Marcello Mastroianni.Once more, when we see such films we miss an…
