Based on Thomas Mann's 1912 novella. Mann's lonely and obsessed novelist was transformed by Visconti into a composer based on Mahler who travels to Venice for his health and becomes increasingly obsessed with an adolescent Polish boy. The middle film of Visconit's "German Trilogy," an impressionistic, conceptual cycle that begins with "The Damned" (1969) and ends with "Ludwig" (1972). Nominated for an Academy Award and for the Palm d'Or.
Shot on location in Venice, Italy.
12 x 9 inches. Very Good plus, with some creasing and two small closed tears to left edge.
