Amadeus (1984)

The story of Mozart as a young man of incomparable musical genius. He was a party guy and a spendthrift, but he worked on composing constantly. In fact, goaded by a rival and guilt generated by his father - both before and after his father's death - Mozart finally worked himself to an early death.

Mozart's compositions remain among the most popular and perfect musical scores to this day.

Do You Remember Amadeus?

Do You Remember Amadeus?

    Amadeus is a masterpiece! No it's not perfect, since when did Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart have an American accent?! But the attention to detail in the costumes is astonishing. No it's not a true account of Mozart's life, but it's a fun, quirky film. The start is misleadingly dark. A scene near the end of the film is one of the most moving I've seen. This film actually ignited a passion for classical music in me.
