Amadeus 2.0. Contrary to his family’s expectations, the son of a Prague miller embarked on a journey to Italy, to the very heart of the world of opera, in search of his dream. An epic biographical film tells the story of Josef Mysliveček, the most celebrated Czech composer of the 18th century. Unlike so many others, he succeeded in making his mark there and enjoying a stellar career in the second half of the 18th century. But as it usually is in life, the higher you climb, the harder you fall… The film offers a glimpse into the world full of heavenly music, breathtaking dresses and stunningly beautiful women.
