Death in Venice [Morte a Venezia] Luchino Visconti

Italian Cycle


The story of the meeting between an ageing composer going through a crisis and a young man, in a luxurious Venice seaside hotel. A cinema adaptation of Thomas Mann’s novel of the same name, this is the story of the conflict between Aschenbach’s inner world, into which he has retreated, and the tangible, living world of Tadzio, which represents life itself, as beautiful as it is disturbing. A meeting without dialogue, communication beyond words.
