MORTE A VENEZIA - DEATH IN VENICE, Lucchino Visconti (1971). Lido 1911. In the shimmering light of the midday sun, a party of beachwalkers crosses the field of vision of Aschenbach, who sits a little apart and looks out over the sea. The composer, identified in the film as Gustav Mahler, experiences the disappearance of his epoch between a dream of fantasy, delusion and reality. He wistfully takes leave of Venice, which is in disarray both for him and historically.

MORTE A VENEZIA - TOD IN VENEDIG, Lucchino Visconti (1971). Lido 1911. Im flirrenden Licht der Mittagssonne kreuzt eine Gesellschaft von Strandspaziergängerinnen das Blickfeld des etwas abseits sitzenden, aufs Meer schauenden Aschenbach. Der im Film als Gustav Mahler kenntlich gemachte Komponist erfährt zwischen Wunschtraum, Wahn und Wirklichkeit das Verschwinden seiner Epoche. Er nimmt Abschied von Venedig und seinen nostalgischen Traumgebilden, die sich sowohl für ihn als auch historisch betrachtet in Auflösung befinden.
