Amadeus script
Amadeus (1984)
Synopsis: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce) is a remarkably talented young Viennese composer who unwittingly finds a fierce rival in the disciplined and determined Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham). Resenting Mozart for both his hedonistic lifestyle and his undeniable talent, the highly religious Salieri is gradually consumed by his jealousy and becomes obsessed with Mozart's downfall, leading to a devious scheme that has dire consequences for both men.

VALET:

No one, sir. He'll be all right.

Poor man. He's a little unhappy, you

know.

He makes a sign indicating 'crazy,' and goes back inside the

house. The onlookers keep staring.

CUT TO:

INT. LANDING OUTSIDE OLD SALIERI'S SALON - NIGHT

The Cook is standing holding the candlestick in one hand,

the dish of cakes in the other. The Valet arrives, panting.

VALET:

Did he open?

The Cook, scared, shakes his head: no. The Valet again knocks

on the door.

VALET:

Here I am, Signore. Now open the

door.

He eats the sugared cake in his hand, elaborately and noisily.

VALET:

Mmmm - this is good! This is the

most delicious thing I ever ate,

believe me! Signore, you don't know

what you're missing! Mmmm!

We hear a thump from inside the bedroom.

VALET:

Now that's enough, Signore! Open!

We hear a terrible, throaty groaning.

VALET:

If you don't open this door, we're

going to eat everything. There'll be

nothing left for you. And I'm not

going to bring you anything more.
