In my opinion in order to like this movie, I think you must appreciate and listen to classical music in general, some of the story yes is fictionalized but the music adds so much to the movie. I like the scene with the piece Serenade No 10. There's no reason why it should receive anything less than 4 or 5 stars.
Visually stunning film, excellent screenplay and direction, powerful acting performance from F. Murray Abraham. In the words of it's screenwriter Peter Schaeffer and based on his stage play, "Amadeus" is a fantasia based on fact. Viennese urban legend yes, but it's a beautiful, compelling and highly engaging film.
A fabulous movie that I will put on my list of favorites seen over the years. It made the legend come to life and created a totally relatable and delightful character, one you would love to know. I could watch this movie again and again and still feel the laugh and cry. Beautifully done with superb acting and period costumes!
