Death in Venice (1971)

Luchino Visconti directs this acclaimed version of Thomas Mann's novel.  Gustav van Aschenbach (Dirk Bogarde) is an aging German composer who is  visiting Venice. Having given up on his existence, he is stirred from  his torpor by a young boy named Tadzio (Bjorn Andresen) who seems to  represent his ideal of physical beauty and purity. The character of von  Aschenbach was modelled on Gustav Mahler, whose music is heard  throughout the film.
