A Beautiful Imperfection (Feature)


A Beautiful Imperfection tells the empowering story of Lucia, Giacomo Casanova’s first and greatest love, who leaves Italy for Amsterdam, after her face has been disfigured by smallpox. 16 years later, when she has reinvented herself as a veiled courtesan known by the name of Galathée, they meet again. Without revealing her true identity and face, Lucia and Giacomo become lovers once again. Does Lucia dare to unveil herself and turn her weakness into her strength so she can be truly free in the face of her great love?

Based on the book ‘Een schitterend gebrek’, translated as ‘In Lucia’s Eyes’ by Arthur Japin.
