Amadeus begins in the sass, with an aging Antonio Saltier screaming “Mozart! I killed you! ” and attempting suicide. After being taken to a mental hospital, Saltier is visited by a priest who comes to hear Galleries confession, and it Is this confession that forms the film’s narrative and the root of Galleries agony. Before telling his confession, Saltier plays for the priest a few of his own musical pieces on the harpsichord.
However, although years before these musical pieces had been nothing UT popular and famous, they were now completely unrecognized by the priest. The film puts Its focus on Antonio Caller’s relationship/obsession with Mozart. Sellers, the narrator of the film, Is a composer who becomes Jealous and Infatuated with Mozart and his works. Mozart does not show much of an appreciation for Galleries work, but Saltier still attends all of Mozart performances and believes that Mozart has been blessed with a gift from God.
Galleries obsession with Mozart increases throughout the movie. When Saltier gets a chance to see some of Mozart original scores he seems to have an unhealthy fixation on them. Mozart proved to be a genius, one that the world will probably never see. His ability to compose and play his music is truly amazing. The jealousy of Antonio Saltier of Mozart talent is sickening. His sense of displaced anger with God and his lack of ability. Pushed him on a destructive path of destruction which landed him in the asylum in the first place.
His lust for respect and power took away from his ability to do the work. That is one thing that showed how great his talent was. I thought it was weird that Mozart was telling Saltier what to “rite and he could not write it because he could not envision it in his head as he “rote. I think this is part of what took him so long to write it. I think that they tried to make you feel the sorrow of his death by not only showing the funeral and all the dark clothes, but also by making the setting in very gloomy and rainy weather.
In conclusion seeing this movie honestly gave me more of an appreciation of classical USIA, and the work that is put in to compose and create and Opera. I was able to see the struggles of both of these artists. It proved to be a very cut throat. I was actually dreading watching this movie but, I ended up enjoying It.
