Antonio Salieri believes that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's music is divine and miraculous. He wishes he was himself as good a musician as Mozart so that he can praise the Lord through composing. He began his career as a devout man who believes his success and talent as a composer are God's rewards for his piety. He's also content as the respected, financially well-off, court composer of Austrian Emperor Joseph II. But he's shocked to learn that Mozart is such a vulgar creature, and can't understand why God favored Mozart to be his instrument. Salieri's envy has made him an enemy of God whose greatness was evident in Mozart. He is ready to take revenge against God and Mozart for his own musical mediocrity. Written by
The filmmakers have referred to this movie as "a fantasia based on fact." There are numerous historical facts that were incorporated beyond many characters being historical persons and their relationships as having been actual. Among certain historical facts is that Mozart died a pauper and was buried in an unmarked pauper's grave as depicted at the end of the movie. It is also highly likely that he did indeed die of alcohol poisoning. See more »

An Excellent film of describing Mozart's life from wealthy with great fame that shatters in pieces
Amadeus is one tremendous film. The acting was great. Tom Hulce did wonderful and I have only seen him once in a film and that was Animal House. The rest of the cast was great to like F. Murry Abraham did a terrific job in his performance. The music was brilliant, I have never seen a film with such great performances in their plays. I really did admire this movie, everything in it was very interesting and after I watched the film I did a little research on Mozart. The script and directing was superb and the cinematography was brilliant. I couldn't of asked for a better film than Amadeus. I'm glad I saw this film!
Hedeen's outlook: 10/10!! **** A+
