Visconti's interpretation of Thomas Mann's Death in Venice is a triumphant masterpiece spot-lighting the intellectual pursuit of beauty through the metaphor of an older man admiring a young man. To the base, some will say this is a piece of homoerotic literature better written for a sophiscated wit, while to the cultivated mind, it celebrates the love of purity, chase and innocence. Aschenbach's admiration for Tadziu is as old as Civilization and new as next fall fashion. For beauty is an event prefixed upon rising above the senses in which true appreciation can be attained. The movie remains worthy of its accolades.
