Luchino Visconti directs this acclaimed version of Thomas Mann’s novel. Gustav van Aschenbach (Dirk Bogarde) is an aging German composer who is visiting Venice. Having given up on his existence, he is stirred from his torpor by a young boy named Tadzio (Bjorn Andresen) who seems to represent his ideal of physical beauty and purity. The character of von Aschenbach was modelled on Gustav Mahler, whose music is heard throughout the film.

I feel this film is exactly the way all films should be. Exiting, tragic,yet beautifully shot. I love Bjorn's character, I find him VERY good looking and don't blame Dirk's character at all. Also I just want to know does anyone if Tadzio actually dies as well at the end?????
