Movie Info

Amadeus only speculated on the probable causes of the death (both actual and spiritual) of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Czech-German Forget Mozart goes several steps further. When Mozart (Max Tidorf) is found dead, it's fairly obvious he's been murdered. Rounding up the likely suspects, Austrian police chief Count Pergen (Armin Mueller-Stahl) demands that each of his prisoners recall, in detail, his or her relationship to Mozart. As things unfold, however, it is clear that "guilt" is a relative term: the "murderer" turns out not to be a who, but a "what"--and even this is an elusive commodity. Nothing more can be revealed here without giving away the plot and the film's point of view. Originally titled Zabudnite na Mozarta, this existential exercise seemed destined from the start for limited art-house and festival viewings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
