Hulce & Abraham deliver the goods in this fictional account of the contrasting careers of Mozart and Solieiri, and the conflict that might have been triggered between a mucho-talented (but rude) young virtuoso, and a 'court composer' plodding along in the indentured service of Emperor Joseph. I love this original 'unextended' version -- and you get the add-on of fantastic music (if a music professor studied Mozart his entire life, he might know 150 pieces well by retirement - but Mozart wrote hundreds by his death at age 35). Oh - the best re-acting ever caught on film.

I expect this storyline is even better than the real thing was.
Fascinating to witness historical people fleshed out and vivified from the dry pages of lore.
Easily transports the viewer to its world, and it's a gripping, highly entertaining one.

This film focuses on events in the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is told from the perspective of a Rival Composer (Saleri) who recounts how Mozart affected his life. The acting is quite effective and the Film certainly gives an introduction into the Music of Mozart. The actor who portrays Mozart does an excellent job. Some people think that the Movie is a bit long, but it certainly tells the story of the live of Mozart.

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.

When I saw this movie in its original release in 1984, it was only due to the fact that I was dragged to the theatre. (A movie about Mozart -- BORING!!) I have never been so quick to change my mind. From the opening moments, hearing F. Murray Abraham shout out the word "MOZART" I was hooked, and my eyes never waivered from the screen. I anxiously awaited the release of this Director's Cut, due primarly to the extras that were purported to be included. The extras more than deliver on their promise.
Not only did I get the joy of watching once again one of the best movies to have ever been released -- to remember how enthralled I was by the performances of Tom Hulce, F. Murray Abraham and Elizabeth Berridge (unfortunately, most reviewers tend to exclude her contribution to this movie, but her performance as Constanza, Mozart's wife, is as powerful as the others) -- but the extras (behind the scenes, the commentaries) added to my delight.
I truly find it hard to put into words how wonderful this movie is. I have spent the last 20 years telling people "Trust me, just watch it, and you will understand what I am talking about." It is more than just a grand journey through the worlds of these two men (yes, granted, told from a "movie" point-of-view). The entire package, from the scenery, the costumes, the story and THE MUSIC, THE MUSIC, THE MUSIC!!! shows you how a movie should and can be produced. Even if you can't stand classical music, you will adore the wonder that is Mozart.
Please -- I'm begging you -- WATCH THIS MOVIE. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

Quelle film incroyable! Trame sonore parfaite. Le film apporte les faits de la vie de Mozart tout en offrant un superbe divertissement. Très accessible à tous. La preuve que les grands génies sont souvent incompris par leur génération. D'où l'importance de rester authentique à soi-même peut importe la société dans lequel on vit.

Aside from being the musical genius we all know by name today, and 'Wolfy's' supposed eccentricities. There's Nilos direction of the callous and the contempt in human nature that is truly on display throughout this movie. The wrong person in the wrong place, trying to do the right thing.... It seems like Milos has a knack for detecting these characters, be it One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest to The People Vs. Larry Flynt. And it's not only the sympathy Milos drums up for the 'hero' in his movies, it's the sympathy for the opposition they faced as well. Be it Nurse Ratched in a neck brace, Salieri absolving the lunatics, or Charles Keating implicated in the S&L debacle after his crusade for decency. How do these things get born? How does providence allow them to excel? Why does fate challenge it all at every turn? And is the justice at the end really that 'just'? Whether you know classical music and opera scoring, or you're into Jimi Hendricks or Nirvana. This is a MUST SEE movie if you wonder how stars can be brought down from the sky. And the mechanisms and politics that put's the dirt onto their untimely demise. If happened to live just one more day, our appreciation and revere may have totally changed by now. For better, or for worse.

Peter Shaffer wrote the "Amadeus" screenplay based on his play, which is a quirky, fanciful vision of Mozart and Salieri, and how God gave Mozart the gift of musical genius despite his character flaws, but bypassed Salieri, who tried to strike a deal with the Almighty, vowing pious devotion, if He would only grant him brilliance and fame.
F. Murray Abraham is marvelous portraying Salieri's pride and envy, and having to suffer the indignity of mediocrity; the part garnered him a Best Actor Oscar and a Golden Globe, among other awards, and as Mozart, Tom Hulce is stupendous, with his high pitched raucous giggle, fluffy wigs, and energetic appeal.
Others in the cast of note are Elizabeth Berridge, excellent as Mozart's wife Constanza, and Roy Dotrice as his stern father Leopold.
The biggest star of the film however, is the music...the glorious sounds of Mozart's operas, and his magnificent Requiem. Many of my favorite scenes are depicted, from the ballet music from "The Marriage of Figaro", to "Don Giovanni a cenar teco", as well as portions of "The Marriage of Figaro", "The Magic Flute", and much more.
Some of the great voices heard are Samuel Ramey (Figaro), Richard Stilwell (Count Almaviva / Don Giovanni), June Anderson (Queen of the Night), Brian Kay (Papageno) and Gillian Fisher (Papagena), though the parts on screen are played by actors, and not those singing.
Twyla Tharp's choreography is fresh and exhilarating, Miroslav Ondricek's cinematography is exquisite, and Milos Forman's direction imaginative and well paced.
As well as Best Actor, the Academy bestowed Oscars for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Art Direction/Set Decoration, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Sound, all well deserved.
Total running time is 160 minutes.
