 Sensational

A marvelous piece of cinema.
I recently re-watched this film by introducing it to my partner and she now rates it as one of her favourite films. This from a woman who enjoy rom-coms, Friends and Sex in the City and rarely delves into movies such as this.
For me this is near perfection (not sure that actual perfection is possible); the direction is superb and the two lead turns are stunning. The Director's Cut adds even more quality without ruining the pace and if anything improves on the near-perfect original release.
It doesn't matter if you don't like classical music or period pieces as this is timeless. Watch and enjoy.

 A Milos Forman Masterpiece! One of my Favourites!

Milos Forman, who gave us 'One Flew Over Cuckoo's Nest' in 1975, presented this classic picture nine years later. Depicting the life of genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the lustful eyes of another great composer Antonio Salieri, who ended up in an institution reason being the unreachable levels of Mozart's artistic capabilities!

Very good movie and adaptation with lots of great music, costumes, and all that glittered in that era, together with an exceptional performance by F. Murray Abraham who saw him lifting an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role playing Salieri. Other Oscars included Best Director and Best Film totalling eight Oscars in all.

This Special Director's Cut version includes an additional 20 minutes which were never shown on the big screen, while the second Disc is wonderful to watch illustrating the difficulties encountered in filming in the then Communist Prague.

 THE BEST FILM IN THE WORLD ?

What can I say about this one ? I dont like classical music, I dont like period dramas, and I dont like bum numbingly long films !
Amadeus breaks all my preconceptions, and makes me re-evaluate what I look for in a cinematic experience.
The music is stirring, the story line is captivating and the cinematography is lush and deep.
Quite simply the best film I have ever seen !

 A Feast for the Senses

A lush period drama with beautiful costumes, entrancing score and creative casting. Adapted from the play of Peter Schaffer which postulates a possible scenario for premature death of Mozart at the age of 35.

The story is told from the perspective of Salieri (F. Murray Abraham), who believes he is responsible for the death of Mozart (Tom Hulce).

Salieri is the court composer for the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II, when he comes across the rising star of Mozart. Salieri (a devout Roman Catholic) is horrified that such a crude imbicile has been gifted with such a divine talent. Saliieri struggles with his love of Mozart's music, and his contempt for the man.

He makes a vow with God to destroy Mozart. He sets about this task by feigning friendship, but all the while using every opportunity to undermine and discredit him.

It is perfectly understandable why this movie received over 40 awards including 8 Academy, 4 Bafta, 4 Golden Globes... the list goes on. One for the collection.

 AMADEUS,YAWWWWWWN

Quite dreadfully dull film, lifted only by Abrahams performance. Simon Callow occasionally drifting in and out of an American accent presumably under the infuence of American financial backing. Hulces performance as Mozart beggars belief- his manic hysterical laugh has to be heard to be believed. Not to mention his wifes nickname for Mozart..... "Wolfy"?
