The movie wasn't bad after all. Not to mention, Mozart was superb!
We had been watching the movie Amadeus for the past 3 days in our Fine Arts class. It was a good idea as a diversion to compensate the boring sessions that started last week. Listening to several instrumental classics didn't really work on us, same thing with the nerve-wracking music analysis that only made the Wikipedia and Britannica sweep that bloody requirement to a printed paper (bleee!).
Anyway, the movie smacked us with the superb talent of Mozart. He could play the piano sideways, backwards, blind-folded, one-handed, and any way you would put him. He could even recite and master a musical piece after hearing it for some few minutes. Amazing eh?
His life wasn't that successful though. In fact, it was tragically flown from what's supposed to be expected out of his exceptional talent. He was marked as the youngest genius in music of his time until now. Among all the musicians and composers ever since history started making music, only Mozart had composed the most number of pieces that either flunked or made him plenty and famous.
I'm not even sure though if Mozart really laughed that way in the movie, indecent but amusing. Every little thing might be uninteresting after you watch the trailer, but you might just want to hear him laugh at least. He sure had been a very great musician during his time!
