How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How is church and state intermingled in this movie? Within the context of this film, do you think the church had a right to do anything to Casanova?

Does casual sexual behavior have any cost to society? If so, what are some of the ways we “pay” for liberal sexual activity? Are there any benefits for having a more sexually permissive society?

Casanova was born in 1725 in Venice. For more information about this colorful character, check this site: http://www.kirjasto.sci.fi/casanova.htm
