Amadeus [DVD] [1984]: F. Murray Abraham, Tom Hulce, Elizabeth Berridge, Simon Callow, Roy Dotrice, Christine Ebersole ~ Clever & very watchable film about Mozart ~ For Film & TV

Created by Ron Koslow. With Ron Perlman, Roy Dotrice, Jay Acovone, Linda Hamilton. The adventures and romance of a sensitive and cultured lion-man and a crusading assistant district attorney in Manhattan, New York City.

Roy Dotrice. The stories he tells bring all of life onto the stage: schoolmasters beating their pupils, the foibles of the rich and famous, seductions and strange births and even stranger deaths. What emerges is a great love for the richness and strangeness of human life and a desire to capture this before these ‘brief lives’ are over. The setting of the sun at the end of the play leaves a feeling of awe and melancholy.
