Visconti's "Death in Venice" and Mahler's Adagietto

Once I read that had been Visconti's "Death in Venice" film, which mades Mahler's 5th symphony "Adagietto"....famous! What do you think about this?, because in first place, in my opinion "Death in Venice"'s version of the "Adagietto" is the worst of all I've heard, bad played and bad recorded, by a mediocre orchestra. On the contrary, I think that the Adagietto would be precisely withing the something few good things of the film. I must to say that italian cine -and in general also french cinema- always has deceptioned to me,  I think inclusive that the best of Fellini's films would be Nino Rotas's music, about the contents I dont like them. What do you think about this??oscar.olavarria.

I do not like the film but it is a good book and a good symphony. It is a poor film but the film is poor in itself.  It is not the fault of Mahler or Mann is it. Don't watch such poor film. Visconti is a poor relic from a pis poor age. 70s films are very bad. I watch Pissideon adventure last night. It very poor too.

Yes, Adrian.  The explanation is, it's another Brodsky wind-up.

Vic does like watching young girls, and a bit of man on man brutalism as well it seems.

You may not know Vic (and it was better for your blood pressure if you didn't see it), that Brodsky made a scurrilous comment about you here yesterday evening because of your liking for the film 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'. I, and several others, immediately complained and all reference to the matter was removed.
