Format: DVD
"Amadeus", was a great success on stage prior to becoming a film that garnered 8 Academy Awards, together with dozens of other international honors. This director's cut version of the film not only adds 20 minutes to bring this exceptional film to 3 hours, it also has created a spectacular new digital transfer, and most interestingly a new film.
Many special editions and director's cut offerings are little more than the addition of scenes that were dumped prior to the film's original release, and rarely have any fundamental impact on the story that is told. Fully one third of all the chapters in this film have new footage, and the changes have a very real impact on the film. Most of the new exposition is about Salieri and it makes him a much darker character, this Salieri is much more than a jealous admirer of Mozart. This man makes demands of persons and actively intervenes much more in the professional destruction of Mozart in Vienna.
One of the film's mysteries for me was why Mozart's wife held such hatred for Salieri at the close of the film. This question is answered, and it again makes for a major change in how you will view Constanze. And of course more insight is given to Mozart as well. If you are a devotee of the original film you may have trouble warming to this version, you may even be well advised to avoid it. For once you see this film you will never be able to watch the shorter version and confine your thoughts to what they were prior to seeing the additional 20 minutes of film.
There is a second disc that includes extended interviews with Milos Forman, Peter Shaffer, and many of the main characters. An interesting aspect that is shared is that this entire film was shot behind the Iron Curtain of the USSR when it was still the nemesis of The United States.

Format: DVD
I loved "Amadeus" the first time I saw it and every time thereafter, on tape, DVD and now in this DVD package. It is a very great film, exceptionally worthy of its Oscars, and the role of a lifetime for Tom Hulse. The operatic and musical scenes in this film succeed on a scale never seen before. The finale of "Don Giovanni" is better in this movie than in the two live performances I've seen and the performance Herbert von Karajan led that was shown on PBS in 1990. The direction, acting, script and locations are all sumptuous. It apparently does not follow the play on which it is based, but artistic difference is the basis of enjoyment. Having said all this, I would caution viewers not to judge the real-life Mozart by the portrayal of Hulse in this film. The real Mozart, I have read, was a prudish workaholic that would never go out drinking with his buddies. He also played by the rules of the day and adored Salieri, respecting his role as the musical director in Vienna. Still, it's fair to set history aside in a work of art this fine. Anyone that likes great music or great movies will enjoy this.

Director's cut includes many non essential scenes.Why would you deliberately ruin what was a perfect picture.Now the movie drags and is TOO LONG.What they should have done is give the viewer the option of watching the Theatrical version OR the Director's cut..Guess which one I would want to see.

Format: DVD
With the VHS (video) version, the story is more complete in the sense that you see the whole story as it was originally portrayed in the movie. The DVD cuts the story short in the sense that it ends with the requiem.
The company manufacturing the DVDs should inform customers in advance that in order to get the whole story as seen in the movies, they (the customers) must purchase more than one DVD. Or did I miss something?

Format: DVD
Dual layer DVDs can hold 7GB. Braveheart, for example, is 3.5 hours long on a single side. For this 2.5 hour movie, I have to eject the DVD and turn it over! What's worse is that *NONE* of these two sided DVDs have any indication on the label of the box (or internet site) of this inconvenience....

Format: DVD
the whole point in buying dvd's is to get a higher quality video experience than traditional vhs formats. so why does time warner continue to sell dvd's like this one where you have to flip the dvd in order to watch the entire movie. makes no sense why they can't fit the whole film on one side. i strongly recommend no one buy this and the many other dvd's this company offers until they come out with a version with the entire film on one side. the fact they they fail to note this massive flaw on the package continues to frustrate all customers. just plain stupid.

I have the DVD version of this movie. I am not into classical music,but I did enjoy this movie. I gave it 4 stars,..but I take one away becasue I have to "FLIP" the dang disc over to finish it. Whats up with that Warner Brothers. You guys did the same with "The Color Purple!". Two classic movies on DVD,..and you have to flip them over in the year 2001. What a bummer.

Amadeus [2009] [Director's Cut] [Limited Edition DigiBook Package] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Amadeus - The Man! The Music! The Magic! The Madness! This is the incredible, mostly true story about the relationship between two composers in 18th century Vienna. Antonio Salieri, the successful court composer for Emperor Joseph of Austria, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a child prodigy who, while vulgar and irritating, writes the greatest music the world has ever heard. The film unfolds in a series of flashbacks, as Antonio Salieri is consumed with jealously by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's natural talent, and is unable to accept the knowledge that he will never possess the genius of a man he cannot stand. The film is presented in the Director's Cut, which features about 20 extra minutes of footage from the theatrical release.
