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

Quirky, yes, but presented lovingly
12 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

It is true that all of the folks featured in this documentary are quirky in one way or another and some are quirkier than others, but what I was most struck by was the love and respect that comes through from those who were behind the scenes. The various people affected by Mozart are all presented without being judgmental. Any negative reactions to them must come from the viewer and not from the filmmaker.

The couple who have the most time in the film are a couple of women who believe they are the reincarnation of Mozart and a woman who may have been his lover. Since they are the largest target, they are the easiest to hit. Who is to say, with 100% certainty, that they aren't the reincarnation of the 18th century couple? And what does it matter? Whether they are or not, is beside the point as far as the film goes. The point of the film is to show how, after two and a half centuries, the music and the person of Mozart still affects people in ways large and small.
