Alla ricerca di Tadzio: when Björn Andrésen met Visconti

¿Gay? games 

There's a wonderful RAI documentary, an extraordinary Death in Venice pre- making of, when Visconti and a small film team travelled around cold Europe for casting a blonde teenager. Don't worry, it's Thomas Mann !
This doc piece should be included into the 2 disc WB DVD or into a blu ray upgrade. Sadly, it's only surfing the net in bad conditions.

Visconti very dissaponited in Budapest, the first step on his search for Tadzio.

And suddenly, He, Björn Andrésen , appears and Viasconti has found his Tadzio
