The notorious lover Giacomo Casanova bumps into his doppelganger, a con-man
named Giacomino. In reality, age is beginning to catch up with Casanova.
His anatomy is not cooperating with his reputation; yet his look-alike
has no trouble getting and maintaining an erection. He's just not interested.
Meanwhile, an Arabian King and his wife are in Venice for an oil deal
and - as part of the negotiations - she insists on a night with the legendary
sleazy European sex comedy was quite an eye-opener for Tony Curtis fans
who were used to his mainstream Hollywood fare. It's directed [in English]
by Austrian filmmaker Franz Antel who used the pseudonym Francois Legrand
mostly for his later sex stuff. He also won numerous awards for arthouse
films [i.e., the anti-Nazi black comedy Der Bockerer
(The Butcher) series]. Mr Antel died of natural causes at 94, August 2007.
