Movie Info

This movie takes place during the premiere of Mozart's Die Zauberfloete (The Magic Flute). Not really depicting his entire life and loves, much of this is fictionalized scatology. Although not without basis in fact, Mozart has attained a somewhat colorful reputation and this is really just more of the same. The music is a joy, but the movie bogs down in titillation. Mozart's last days were lived in poverty and disgrace--stemming chiefly from his embracing of the Freemason stance, which was essentially a heresy in Austria and the rest of Europe at that time. None of this is depicted and even a satyr could not sustain the lifestyle Mozart has been portrayed as having here. Still, this is an interesting movie and worth a listen to. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Life and Loves of Mozart

Werner has an angelic face. The movie is filled with beautiful women. The music is Mozart! What I enjoyed most was watching the performers listening to the performers. There is reverence for the Beautiful.
