1. Italy. Directed by Luchino Visconti. Adapted from the novella by Thomas Mann. Music by Gustav Mahler. With Dirk Bogarde, Romolo Valli, Silvana Mangano, Mark Burns, Marisa Berenson, Björn Andrésen. Visconti’s coming-out-of-the-closet film, based on Mann’s apparent outing of Mahler, is ultimately a meditation on beauty, filmed amid the most beautiful city man has been able to create. As with his The Leopard, the “Father of Neorealism” offers an exquisite canvas on which to depict the ultimate tragedy. 130 min.
