He did not order his favorite dish. But he was not Albert.
He went out of his way, beyond his normal principles, beyond his definition. He was not Albert.
He kept the stupid tactless things, and objective comparisons, to himself, causing more awkwardness. He was not Albert.
He could’ve done something cooler. But he was not Albert.
He was red-faced when even alcohol would not flush his face. He was doing what Albert would not do.
He could’ve come home either happy or feeling like a failure. He came home not feeling like Albert.
He blindly did and fell right into the trap. He’d be damned if he did or if he didn’t, but he certainly did not take Albert’s course of action.
He apologizes for that. For it was very challenging, and excruciating, for him not to be Albert.
However, Albert will tell you what he thinks of the movie Casanova:
Quaint, richly decorated Venice landscapes and awesome cinematography emphasize on the great romanticness of this movie. However, the movie stumbles upon its mixed genres. It has excellent, sharp pokes at the church, like “is a confession all you need?” at a court. It has clever puns and double entendres, but those are few and far in between. In the meantime they have a lot of senseless, unfunny slapstick in the background. Yes, they have interesting character-swapping twists that tend to confuse, but if you’re looking for something romantic with clever flirty wit, I’d go with Down With Love.
