Movie Info

The Mozart drama Interlude In Prague, a British film from helmer John Stephenson and scripters Brian Ashby and Helen Clare Cromarty. Clark will play Zuzana Luptakova, an 18-year-old soprano who begins a passionate affair with Mozart (Aneurin Barnard) but is forced to marry another man. James Purefoy and Samantha Barks also star in the film, which is set the eponymous city in 1787 and follows a few turbulent months in Mozart's life that influenced the creation of Don Giovanni. Productive International is producing with principal photography to start in April 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic. Aneurin Barnard, whose credits include "The White Queen" and "War & Peace," plays the composer at a time when has been brought to Prague by the vain and self-obsessed Baron Saloka. The evil aristocrat is played by Purefoy ( The Following, Roots ). Rising star Morfydd Clark plays the beautiful soprano Zuzana Luptakova, who is betrothed to Saloka but falls in love with Mozart. Saloka, a psychopath, sexual predator and serial rapist, develops an overwhelming hatred that results in callous brutality and murder. Samantha Barks, whose credits include "Les Miserables," is Josefa. "A love story and a tragedy of epic proportions, the characters, the passions, heartbreak and awful outcome could just as easily exist in a contemporary story. I intend to shoot this with fast-moving camera and use modern post-production techniques to capture the energy and atmosphere of a modern thriller. The result will be a glorious heart-in-mouth solar plexus knockout." At the start of the shoot, director John Stephenson said.

Critic Reviews for Interlude in Prague

All Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • Interlude in Prague is at best a chance to hear some lovely music by Mozart but, for a film about the genesis of Don Giovanni, it could do with more of it.

  • [Aneurin Barnard] is a likeable enough Mozart, one a little more world-weary than that portrayed by Tom Hulce in Amadeus.

    Jul 27, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Its tone veers wildly in operatic fashion from cute comedy to lusty romance to very dark violence. But the actors are terrific, and the film catches a clever sense of both the history and the music.

  • The costumes are gorgeous, it's nicely shot and the operatic scenes are beautifully staged. The only bum note is the romance.
