Another bad film of Venice?!

And today's winner of the worst film depiction of Venice since "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" is (drum roll please!)... Casanova!

My favorite scene must have been the getaway by horsedrawn carriage, together with the soldiers who take off in hot pursuit. The authorities could have just bided their time, however... In less than 30 seconds, they would have run into a stepped bridge or short underpassage. (There's not much use for a horsedrawn carriage in an island city without roads!!)

Was there any shred of historical accuracy in the entire film??
