Mozart's music in the movies
7. Sunday Bloody Sunday
The emotional power of Mozart’s music was fully realised by director John Schlesinger in his film Sunday Bloody Sunday. This love-triangle with a twist film is the story of a Jewish doctor, Daniel Hirsh and a middle-aged woman, Alex Greville who are both having an affair with the same male artist. Schlesinger uses one of Mozart’s most brilliant works, the trio from Cosi fan tutte, several times throughout the film, including over the closing credits, to highlight the shared themes of the opera and the film - love, lust, fidelity and pain.
