The Most Beautiful Boy in the World, DVD DVD

The Most Beautiful Boy in the World DVD

Directed by Kristina Lindström



Documentary centred on the life of Swedish actor Björn Andrésen following his starring role in Luchino Visconti's 'Death in Venice' in 1971.

Aged just 15 when he was cast in the film, Andrésen was unprepared for the attention his performance received, and being named 'The Most Beautiful Boy in the World'.

Now in his 60s, Andrésen recounts the years following his breakout role, including his years spent as a teenage idol in Japan and his struggles with alcohol and depression.
