The novella is highly autobiographical: while holidaying in Venice, thirty-seven-year-old Mann, a married father, had crushed from afar on a ten-year-old Polish aristocrat, Wladyslaw Moes. Benjamin Britten has adapted this into an opera, and director Luchino Visconti made a 1971 film adaptation of the novella starring Dirk Bogarde and Bjorn Andresen.

''Death in Venice'' is a 1912 novella written by the German author, Thomas Mann (original title ''Der Tod in Venedig''). The story is about an aged writer, Gustav von Aschenbach, who travels to Venice on advice of his doctor and falls in love with a stunningly good-looking, aristocratic boy of fourteen, Tadzio, to whom he never speaks. Gustav finds himself drawn deeply into a ruinous inward passion, which has bad consequences for him, as there is a cholera epidemic currently going down in the city.

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: A gender-flipped meta example, where the 1971 FilmOfTheBook is concerned. When it came time to cast the role of Tadzio, the director made it clear that any old teen heartthrob wouldn't suffice -- he had to have ''the'' single most beautiful boy '''on the planet.''' After an exhaustive search, the single most beautiful boy on the planet was deemed to be a 14-year-old Swede named Bjorn Andresen. [[http://media.tiff.net/contents/stills/DeathVenice2.jpg Judge for yourself.]]
** SoBeautifulItsACurse: Andresen experienced an unfortunate real-life example of this trope soon after playing Tadzio -- apparently, the director took him to gay bars when he was sixteen, and he was continually leered over by the clientele, to the point that Andresen felt like a piece of meat. The requirements of his role in the movie (involving giving lustful, come-hither looks to men) didn't help things either. As a result, Andresen has sworn off any film roles that place emphasis on his beauty, and will never play any homosexual character again.
