The Man… The Music… The Madness… The Murder… The Motion Picture…
Now seen in a revitalized digital transfer and including more than 20 minutes worth of scenes not seen in its original release, Amadeus remains a screen triumph: as sumptuous period epic, soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a top-100 films selection by the American Film Institude and as the winner of eight 1984 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Directed and Adapted Screenplay.
In 1781 Vienna, court composer Antonio Salierie is maddened with envy after discovering that the divine musical gifts he desires for himself have been bestowed on the bawdy, impish Mozart, whom he plots to destroy by any means necessary. And by means of cinematic craft and sublime music, we watch spellbound.
