Mozart in Love

Synopsis: An irreverent take on Mozart's relations with the three Weber sisters: Louisa, whom he loved, but who didn't love him; Constanza, whom he loved and married; and Sophie, who loved him but whom he didn't love. An anthology of arias from Mozart's operas, in which art comments on life through a cheeky use of back-projection and miming to records.
99 min

If only he'd wait for me.

("Cosi Fan Tutte: Ah

Guarda, Sorella" by Mozart)

[Voiceover] I'm so happy.

What do I know of love,

a strange sensation

that had no name?

Was this it?

Who could I turn to?

It's not so easy being young.

Could I trust them?

Could they tell me?

("Le Nozze Di Figaro"

by Wolfgang Mozart)

[Voiceover] I had never felt

anything like this before.

It was Louisa who touched the

most secret part of my heart.

She was my dream love.

("Cosi Fan Tutte: Un'aura

Amorosa" by Mozart)

To be in love again,

it was wonderful.

But this time it was true love.

("Die Zauberflote"

by Wolfgang Mozart)

[Voiceover] It always

happens that way.

The curse of being

the middle child.

The oldest has all

the good fortune.

The youngest is always pampered.

But what about me?

I felt as if my life were over.

("Cosi Fan Tutte: Ah, Che

Tutto In Un Momento" by Mozart)

Perhaps one has to

suffer for one's love.

To test it, to purify

it, to be worthy of it.

Perhaps agony is its

own sweet reward.

[Voiceover] There is no

reward for a troubled heart.

But who can guard themselves

against the pain of love?

We mustn't let this

come between us.

Even though we love

him, and she doesn't.

[Voiceover] I didn't

want it to happen this way.

How can I comfort

you, my dear sisters?

Would you believe

me if I told you

that your unhappiness

is only temporary?

In a month or two, you'll laugh,

thinking back on

your imagined grief.

Oh, I love you both so much.

(graceful operatic music)

I didn't ask for any of this.

It's not my fault

that he adores me.

I'm not to blame if I

can't return his love.

It's a gift I never asked for.

It was nothing more than

innocent flirtation.

I never encouraged him, never.

I didn't want it to

happen like this.

Mark Rappaport

Mark Rappaport is an American independent/underground film director who has been working sporadically since the early 1970s. A lifelong New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, he graduated from Brooklyn College in 1964. Rappaport has been noted by Roger Ebert, Jonathan Rosenbaum, Ray Carney, J. Hoberman, Dave Kehr, and Stuart Klawans. Ray Carney considers him the greatest contemporary American film director. In May 2012, Rappaport filed a lawsuit against Carney for refusing to return digital masters of Rappaport's movies which the filmmaker had previously entrusted to Carney to transport to Paris. The suit was later dropped due to rising legal costs, and Rappaport started an online petition demanding that Carney return the masters.Rappaport made the 1978 drama The Scenic Route. His last three features, all made in the 1990s were Rock Hudson's Home Movies, From the Journals of Jean Seberg, and The Silver Screen: Color Me Lavender.Since his move from New York to Paris in 2003, he has made many short video essays and published a collection of his (fictional and non-fictional) essays in French (Le Spectateur qui en savait trop, translated by Jean-Luc Mengus, Paris: P.O.L, 2008) and three online collections in English available in Kindle editions on Amazon: The Moviegoer Who Knew Too Much (2013), (F)au(x)tobiographies (2013), and The Secret Life of Moving Shadows (available in two parts, 2014). He has also exhibited photomontages in New York, Paris, and elsewhere over the past several years. more…
