Well for one thing both of those movies were historically inaccurate. Amadeus and Salieri weren't enemies as portrayed in the film. Mozart's son was actually a student of Salieri at one point. Immortal Beloved also took Hollywood license in order to make a more watchable movie. I think both are enjoyable to watch but only if you remember that they have some fictional elements. Impromptu is another movie about a composer (Chopin). Composers certainly had interesting lives, but in order to make a movie about them you have to add fictional elements to give them mass appeal and make a more cohesive, entertaining story. How many people would go see a movie about someone who spends most of his time writing music? Sounds somewhat boring to me.
