Fascinating and incredible – Malkovich is splendid!
Giacomo Variations: John Malkovich as Mozart's Casanova film This DVD is features John Malkovich as Mozart’s Casanova. Giacomo Variations: John Malkovich as Mozart's Casanova review That sounds simple enough on the surface. Giacomo Variations: John Malkovich as Mozart's Casanova DVD for sale But what we have here is a combination of acting (and what an amazing performance from Mr. Giacomo Variations: John Malkovich as Mozart's Casanova movie Malkovich), music from Mozart’s Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Cosi Fan Tutte, beautiful costumes, and a story that ranges from the comic to the subtle, from emotional hunger to basal lust. Giacomo Variations: John Malkovich as Mozart's Casanova video Prior to getting this video, I did not know that the infamous Casanova actually knew Mozart and his librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, and that Casanove himself might well have been the inspiration for some of the characterizations present in some of the operas previously mentioned. The production alternates between the actors performances, well done exchanges between the actors and the opera singers (Sophie Klubmann is *wonderful*) so that the music from the various operas can be sung in the proper context of the piece, and back again. Mr. Malkovich even sings a piece near the end as best he can – and even though his voice is certainly not of operatic quality, the genuine nature of what he wants to convey comes right through. His performance is such that this viewer actually felt sorry for Casanova at several points in the piece, which is not what I expected. This is lyrical theater of a sort that I had not seen before, and it is very special…a treat for the eyes, ears, and the mind. This is a fascinating and incredible work, and certainly worth the price. Very highly recommended!
