Storyline

MOZARTBALLS is a light-hearted tribute to Mozart and explores what he symbolizes in our age. The film features curious characters that embody the spirit of Mozart - from a retired Swiss school teacher obsessed by all things Mozart, to an ex-pop musician in Oklahoma who believes that her body is actually inhabited by Mozart's spirit; from a computer genius in California whose software has created a new Mozart cello concerto, to an Austrian astronaut who carried a score of "The Magic Flute" and delicious chocolate 'Mozartkugeln' into space. These are the individuals who inhabit MOZARTBALLS and through their strange and, at times, very moving stories, the viewer will be exposed to the liveliness, the magic and the obsession that Moart has become to so many music fans today. For them, Mozart defines the very essence of beauty in music, but he has become something more than that. Mozart is an icon, and for many he is still very much alive! Written by mcc

No Must for Mozart Fans
15 February 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Director Larry Weinstein is covering a variety of people related to Mozart one way or another. From the down-to earth Austrian astronaut who loves to play Mozart on the piano, to the creative American composer who has composed a cello concerto in Mozart-style, to the charming Swiss pensioner whose life has been saved "by" Mozart, up to hilarious American freaks in costumes claiming in the most absurd way to be Mozart reincarnated. Weinstein is presenting the characters in a neutral way which makes it an entertaining film with a sometimes highly comical tendency, particularly where the freaks are concerned. Yet not necessarily a must for Mozart fans.
