It's a real time-capsule piece that book/movie. Pretty accurate account of the time
LOL...I went to a museum in WA and they had a Sandman panel van on display.
Modified to add: TOPIC - I like how they portrayed Casanova as something a bit more interesting than a legendary root-rat. The line about if they had just been conquests, they would have been forgotten, but he remembered every one of them.

O M F G. Can i love David Tennant anymore. What a cheeky sod!!!!
Tonight was brillant, hilariously funny, slightly disturbing and SAD! *sniff*
I felt so angry with little casanova. How could he turn out to be so different to his father? To see the world through completely different eyes, even though the motions were the same....eeeesh! Did anyone else think when they went into the parlor in Naples 'VESUVIUS CLUB!' hahaha It was soooooooo the Vesuvius Club! hehehe
But my favourite bit was when he was talking to whathisface (henriettes husband) and he goes 'you are just dying to kiss me' LOVED IT!
And how the english guy so thought the english were kicking it 'Lady Asquith is drinking her tea...with LEMON' Oh you must think we're positively giddy in here!
And THE COSTUMES (though perhaps not exactly tradional eheheh) Makes me yeeeearn to dress as gentleman.
I want the DVD! popoo to no extras!
one moment in time defines a friendship of a lifetime...
I don't know if I'll watch the new Heath Ledger movie of Casanova. I love this telling of the story so very, very much. I can't imagine anyone being as gorgeous and as charming and as cheeky as David Tennant.
Very ebarrassed to say, I completely forgot that I had taped this...until today.
Cried like a baby at the end. You know that means they did a damn good job and I got emotionally involved in the story.
Funny thng is, I was reading The Vesuvius Club earlier, and have just got to the part where Lucifer goes to the VC...then I watch this, and there it is! Naples, Mt Vesuvius, dirty sex...I actually found that whole part very disturbing and sad.
