The plot follows Mozart's life chronologically. All seminal events are lovingly enacted with great care for detail and faithful to the period. Go see the German version. It is breathtakingly real. As you may know, Mozart did not have remarkable facial features like Van Beethoven. Christoph Bantzer is an physical look-alike of Mozart, une vraie trouvaille! Written by ben-heideveld

Best Mozart dramatization available to date

Most enjoyable, on original locations that in themselves already greatly support the accuracy of emotionally experiencing Mozart's life, it is brought to unequaled aliveness - due also to the profound understanding and love and sense of beauty, that creator and director, Marcel Bluwal most obviously possesses for Mozart and the life that Mozart was immersed in. He lets Bantzer and Bouquet (resp. Mozart, and his father) - far better than in any other movie since - bring out the truly difficult emotional connections, that any very productive talent of the highest caliber, like Mozart, has - (emotions for and from interacting) with the 'outside world.' And - as opposed to in Milos Forman's unfortunately better known "Amadeus" movie - Marcel Bluwal in his 1982 three part Mozart movie for TV, does it accurately, and to profound emotional impact. Added to that the capture of all that, by superb camera and lighting work, and great attention to historic detail with an excellent choice of music - makes it indeed a truly advisable experience for anyone who loves Mozart's music.
