The Most Beautiful Boy in the World 2021
1h 33min | Documentary | 28 July 2021 (Spain)
In 1971, due to the world premiere of Death in Venice, Italian director Lucino Visconti proclaimed his Tadzio as the world’s most beautiful boy. A shadow that today, 50 years later, weighs Björn Andresen’s life.
For me, it is very temptating to define this documentary as high useful. But it is more than a documentary. For the admirers/viewers of Death at Venice by Luchino Visconti, it is an answer. About fascination of body/ presence/ androgenity of an age against cold reality. About a life, presented as delicate sketch. And this delicacy represents, maybe, the basic precious virtue of the film. It is a film of a states, seed of them. Great scene by scene. Because the impact between the young Bjorn Andresen and the image of a sort of hippy -prophet , creation of regrets is admirable. In some measure, about the universe of Luchino Visconti than about the biography of mister Andresen.
