From the acclaimed director of Anne of Green Gables...comes a new film meant to entice and captivate the musically literate. Based on the opera "The Magic Flute" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sullivan's newest movie release - "Mozart's Magic Flute Diaries" - tells the story of a young singer named Tom who falls in love with the mysterious woman who is cast opposite him in The Magic Flute. Tom's imagination carries him back to the 18th century to the grandeur and glory of Mozart's time, but he soon realizes that his "reality" holds just as much as suspense, romance, and intrigue as his daydreams.
Mozart's Magic Flute Diaries recently was awarded Best Family Film at the Staten Island Film Festival in Canada.
My husband and I watched the film after our daughter's bedtime several weeks ago. Although it certainly is clean and refreshingly devoid of sexuality, violence, or language, I wouldn't necessarily categorize it as a "family film" because the plot is a bit too serious and "grown-up" for young ones. The genre would best be described as "drama" or simply "opera." This film is truly for the classical music aficionado. Brimming with elaborate costumes, operatic humor, and a full dose of Mozart's musical masterpieces, The Magic Flute Diaries is not your latest blockbuster hit. What it IS is a tasteful piece of culture.
