From Gay Essential

The film Death in Venice (Morte a Venezia) was released in 1971. The film version is an adaptation of the Thomas Mann novel titled Der Tod in Venedig.  Luchino Visconti wrote the screenplay and directed the film.  The film’s protagonist Gustave Aschenbach seeks peace and rest in vain at a Venetian holiday resort. Not only does he find a beautiful boy distracting, but his life is also placed in grave danger at the outbreak of a disease. Dirk Bogarde and Björn Andrésen take on starring roles. Read More Here

Won the “25th ANNIVERSARY PRIZE” at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival and 17 international film awards including four BAFTAs for “BEST ART DIRECTION”, “BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY”, “BEST COSTUME DESIGN” and “BEST SOUNDTRACK”

“Dirk Bogarde gave the greatest performance of his career, in fact one of the greatest of any screen performances, in Visconti's magnificent 1971 version of the Thomas Mann novel”
   Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“As the mannered, camp composer, Bogarde turns in an exquisite performance, relying on actions rather than dialogue to capture the frail hesitancy of this old pederast.”
  Jamie Russell, BBC
