Plot Summary

On March 1, 1971, Luchino Visconti's Death in Venice (1971) had its world premiere in London in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II and her daughter, Princess Anne. It was there that the Italian director proclaimed his Tadzio as the world's most beautiful boy. Fifty years later, that heavy shadow still weighs upon Swedish actor Björn Andrésen, the then 15-year-old star who embodied the legendary Tadzio, who takes us on a memory-laden journey of cinema history, tragedy, and second chances.
