A very RARE documentary in that it does the film it's based on justice
19 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A brilliant story of how all the Czech extras were standing up and saluting the American flag while singing our National Anthem with members of the Secret Police were there starts this enthralling documentary of the great film "Amadeus" off to an interesting start . How Milos at first hated Opera, how he and the screenwriter went about the very tough task of adapting the play, going about finding the right actors, and F. Murray Abraham being interviewed are also very interesting., It features interviews with most of the other cast and select crew as well. It also contains auditions, This was a very interesting documentary for me.
