Year: 1984
Director: Milos Forman
Cast: Tom Hulce, F Murray Abraham, Jeffrey Jones
The sum of the story, costumes, dialogue and history added up to far more than the total, and the end result was altogether not very interesting or exciting.

A fascinating subject for a major movie, but maybe Mozart's life just wasn't interesting enough. Told as an old man all in flashback, the Italian composer to the Austrian royal court (Abraham) who made it his mission to destroy Mozart after believing him to be some sort of heaven-sent angel because of the music he wrote, but turned out to be a pompous, arrogant imbecile.

The one that could have made Tom Hulce a major star, but he never went anywhere except for the wayward brother out of Parenthood.
