Loaded with pleasures, the greatest of which derive from the on location filming in Prague, the most 18th century of all European cities.

Approached as a character drama and not as a biography, Milos Forman's award-winning Amadeus is a pure joy. Impeccable performances and a powerful, universal story centered on a life of private hell in the shadow of greatness. I've seen very few...

I don't have anything to add that someone else hasn't already said. I am only writing this to let everyone know that this is one of the best movies, ever. Don't worry about historical accuracy; it has enough historical value to at least make sense....

DVD really pays off when there is good music. I find Amadeus on DVD way better than in the Theater because of the sound. Great to"watch" with the Music-Only sound track. Beautifull movie.
