Prague, 1786. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart spends a few turbulent months escaping the frustrating, privileged elite of Vienna. However his unconventional presence soon unleashes a series of dramatic and tragic events. Overwhelmed by the tangled web of violence and intrigue that surrounds him and with his mind affected, Mozart creates the astonishing music and drama that becomes 'Don Giovanni'.Written by
I was excited to see this, gorgeous settings, spectacular costumes, fantastic classical music, what could go wrong ? While it is pretty to look at, they forgot an interesting script and anything resembling competent direction. The acting was awful, as another review mentioned everyone came across as a modern actor. There was nothing authentic to it, I felt like I was watching a badly done TV movie. Imagine going to some tourist attraction with dinner theater actors dressed in period costumes, you never actual believe any of it and even that would be more entertaining then this. This was so poorly done, so fake in the way it was presented that I lasted 25 minutes and gave up.
