The fabled romantic Giacomo Casanova, after failing to win the affection of the Venetian woman Francesca Bruni, strives to discover the real meaning of love.
Giacomo Casanova was a real person, but most of the other characters in the movie are not. Francesca Bruni was created for the Bob Hope vehicle Casanova's Big Night (1954), in which she was played by Joan Fontaine.
