"La Nuit de Varennes" (dir. Ettore Scola, 1982). One of my favorite period films of all time. Casanova, Rétif de la Bretonne, and Thomas Paine in a carriage during the royal family's (aborted) flight from Tuileries Palace in 1791. Marcello Mastroianni turns in an incredible performance as an aged Casanova. I confess that I sometimes find it hard to disassociate Mastroianni from Casanova when I read "Histoire de ma vie."
