Amadeus is a 1984 American period drama film directed by Miloš Forman and written by Peter Shaffer. Adapted from Shaffer's stage play Amadeus (1979), the story is a variation of Alexander Pushkin's play Mozart i Salieri, in which the composer Antonio Salieri recognizes the genius of Mozart but thwarts him out of pride and envy. The story is set in Vienna, Austria, during the latter half of the 18th century. The film was nominated for 53 awards and received 40, including eight Academy Awards.
Amadeus. Ironically a movie about another composer, but named after Mozart. I strongly suggest seeing the theatrical version, NOT the director's cut. At the beginning I was scandalized by Mozart, but by the end I liked him. Overall, my favorite character was the preacher, though. Also note that most of the details in the story aren't true.
