Home / Now Showing / DEATH IN VENICE
Adapted from the Thomas Mann novella, this haunting drama follows an ailing German composer (Dirk Bogarde) who travels to Venice hoping to regain his health and creativity. He spots a young boy who embodies his ideal of classic beauty, and becomes dangerously fixated on him as a plague spreads through Venice. This is among Visconti’s most sumptuously mounted period films, featuring music by Gustav Mahler (whose life served as partial inspiration for the screenplay), BAFTA-winning cinematography by Pasqualino De Santis and Oscar-nominated costume design by Piero Tosi. Costarring Marisa Berenson.
