My family is in to classical music, and my dad made me watch this movie one night, and i fell in LOVE with it! I watch very often now! The music is amazing, and so are the actors: they portray their characters very well!

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

Remains the most popularly successful film ever to render the inner life of an artist. Full Review

One of the finest qualities of Amadeus is that it reminds us of those rare occasions when an Oscar sweep is actually merited. Full Review

"Amadeus is about as close to perfection as movies get," I wrote in 1984. Now, it's 20 minutes closer. Full Review

Amadeus needs an additional 20 minutes running time like "The Magic Flute" needs a drum solo. Though the production is gussied up with more frills and decoration than a Viennese dessert trolley, Forman is generally workmanlike in his visual style and very uneven with his handling of actors.
