Movie Reviews:

Tuesday, November 01, 2005

Okay, I'm Big Enough to Admit It.

I was wrong.

The last class I spoke about a trailer I'd seen, advertising an upcoming movie about a fictional romance between Don Juan and Frances Burney. I was, in fact, wrong on both counts, for different reasons.

The "Don Juan" part was simply a matter of crossed wires in the brain -- in fact, it's Casanova who's the lead character of this film. Yes, one was real and the other wasn't, but my brain still associates the two as being the same sort of rogue.

The error I made on "Frances Burney" was based on a mistake in hearing the character's name pronounced on screen. In fact, it's "Francesca Bruni." Which is a mistake anybody could make. No, really. Honest mistake.

*ahem* Little bit red-faced, here.

Anyway, there you have it. Basic premise of the movie stays the same, though given the context (I understand Francesca Bruni was an italian seamstress who Casanova actually met and exchanged letters with) it's obviously not nearly as absurd as it had initially struck me. I mean, it's loosely based on something that didn't really, but could have actually happened, whereas the movie I thought it was, was just downright wacky.

The real movie's titled "Casanova," by the way.

Sorry 'bout that one, folks. In my defence... um... Hey! What's that on your shoulder?

*runs and hides*
