Amadeus Minimal Movie Poster by LamechO Amadeus Minimal Movie Poster by LamechO
Another minimal movie poster. (I think am turning this into a habit.) This turn is for one of my favorite movies of all time, Amadeus. (I swear, I will drop everything and run to the television just to watch the first scene. It's one of my favorite intros. "MOZART!")

The idea popped into my head fully formed with Wolfie's iconic wig, the greater than sign and Salieri's more humble wig. Yeah, I used math to show the one sided rivalry. Confession time, in school I always confused the greater than and less than signs. Even now I do and I had to look it up. Math was never my strong point.

Now if you have never seen Amadeus, I highly recommend it. It's one of those movies that transcend genre and anyone can like it. Look at me, I mostly watch sci-fi, horror and weird, surreal indie movies and like I said, Amadeus is one of my favorite movies. (It's tied with Fight Club as my all time favorite movie, in fact.)

Go watch it! You'll be addicted to Wolfie's infectious giggle.

watched this movie for the first time in Intro to Great Musical Composers last week. I was shocked at how much I liked it. (even though it was full of "Hollywood" facts. Well, that's what you get in a movie based on a play based on a poem based on a rumor) XP

This poster is just as awesome. [link]

OMG LOVE! :iconshaplz:
I remember the first time I watched this movie, it had such an impact on me. When I'm old enough and ready for it, I'm getting Mozart's signature tattooed somewhere~ :D

Awesome! but... i can tell you a suggestion? put the ">" symbol as "V" (versus), and will be simply perfect. ;-)

I always remembered the sign by turning them into alligator mouths. The gator would always go for the bigger "prey" XD

This is absolutely fantastic. But I find myself rooting for Salieri in this film. I love the minimalistic imagery... and how you confine the two characters down to just their wigs. :heart:

This poster sums up the whole story! Well, almost. At least the character relationships.

And yes, that giggle! Echoes in your brain for days.

One of my favorite movies - love it!

Love this movie too. Saw it first when I was rather young and even then I was really taken in by it all. :)
I really like your design, it's a nice concept, very clean and simple. Personally I think the > in black is a tad harsh though, but that's just my opinion. Loving everyones minimalistic film posters, going through them all, seems to be quite a craze of it. :)

FANTASTIC minimalist concept!

How I always remember is that the greater than sign eats the bigger number, cuz it's not hungry for the little one.
LamechO Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2011
Hey, that's a good way of remembering. Thanks.

If this were Facebook, I would "like" this. :iconimhappyplz:
