Casanova's Return to Venice
One of Schnitzler's most poignant evocations of the passing of time and the ironies of sentiment and love, Casanova's Return to Venice tells the story of an aging Casanova's desperate desire to return to the city he truly loves after a life of exile, a desire which is contrasted with his still libidinous, sensuous yet weary pursuit of women, money, and prestige.
