In December of 2008, I heard about the movie Mozart Decoded that was going to be on TV. Having liked the movie Amadeus the first twenty or so times I saw it, and with my obvious interest in Freemasonry, I made sure I didn’t miss it.
“Mozart Decoded - The Man, the Music, The Masonic Mystery” is an hour long film about the life of famous composer and Freemason, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the influences Freemasonry had in his life and music. The movie was mostly focused on his biography. I was a bit let down to find it wasn’t very in depth with Masonic content, but it’s absolutely understandable given that it was completely necessary for the viewer to have some sort of background on him to begin with. As I remember (I last saw this some 2 months ago), the masonic content wasn’t given focus until the midpoint of the film. With any luck, the director will issue another film with a greater information. But it was still a great watch, don’t get me wrong- especially for a short production!
If you’re interested in seeing this film, which I recommend you do, you can buy it online from the production company’s website. I’m not sure if this is available for rent, however, as this did seem to be a “small time” film, but it’s worth checking at your local video store.
