A movie for all of those who love Opera, love Mozart, and love 'Don Giovanni'. The central character is Lorenzo Da Ponte (10 March 1749 - 17 August 1838), a Venetian opera librettist and poet. The movie is about the 'making-of' of 'Don Giovanni' and Mozart and Salieri are very much present and well depicted. It seems that biographically and historically the story line is pretty much accurate. The costumes are lavish, the acting flawless and the directing exemplary.
But what really keeps you mesmerized is the breathtaking cinematography (courtesy of Vittorio Storaro), a true artistic visual feast underscored with Vivaldi in the beginning and then Mozart through and through.
P.S. Italian is the most beautiful language, when people speak, everything rhymes, as if all conversations were just one big sonnet...♥!
Watchable with interested adolescents.
