Death In Venice (1971) Film Review

Death in Venice
DIRECTOR: Luchino Visconi
BOTTOM LINE:  After “The Damned”, Visconti and Bogarde collaborated on adapting the Thomas Mann novel “Death in Venice”. It’s gorgeous if a bit slow-moving. Visconti’s best idea was changing von Aschenbach’s profession from a writer to a composer opening up the movie to the magnificent Gustav Mahler Adagietto (Symphony No.5). The object of beauty, who was presented after a huge Visconti-led talent search, was Bjorn Andresen.
A much older Andresen plays an important role, and very well too, in Ari Aster’s “Midsommar”
