Amadeus (1984)

Milos Forman, director
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, music



Winner of 8 Academy Awards® in 1984, Amadeus tells the story of Vienna court composer, Antonio Salieri and the envy that consumes him upon discovering that the divine musical gifts he has so longed for all his life, have been bestowed on a bawdy, vulgar and impish young composer, Mozart. Salieri’s envy fuels his plot to destroy the man, while all the while unable to tear himself away from the genius of his music.

Amadeus is a screens triumph; a sumptuous period epic, a soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
