I haven't seen the whole film, only about half of it. I was sitting up one late night switching channels on the TV, when I found this on the Austrian channel ORF. And because I am deeply devoted to Mozart, I adored every second of this film.
I agree with "Antoannette" (who wrote the previous comment) in the fact that it may be difficult to understand for those who don't know much about Mozart and the people around him, but since it is an excellent film and very beautiful, I would recommend anyone to see it!
The only problem is: I CAN'T FIND IT!!! Since I saw it on TV I have searched for it to buy on DVD or VHS, but NO WHERE can I find it. Not even in Vienna, where they have a shop with all Mozart-films!
If someone has any information about this film, or even HAS it, please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Watch this movie if you want to see something wonderful! Love, Sandra
