Fascinating - definitely worth viewing
21 May 2007 | by lauraqtSee all my reviews

This stunningly shot film documents film-maker Phil Grabsky's search to find out who the real Amadeus Mozart really was. It follows his incredible journey around the world, recording almost 100 different opera and orchestral performances chronologically throughout his lifetime.

The views of Europe are beautiful, especially when complimented by the fine sounds of one of history's greatest composers. I found this film to be not only a joy to watch, but also a highly informative expose of an incredible man. The musical performances were wonderful too.

This is ideal for fans of Mozart and his work, or even just for those who would like some insight into the man behind the music.
