The Sound of Music

Nun to be Maria (Julie Andrews), who prefers to spend her day singing in the hills rather than praising god, is sent by her fellow nuns to play nanny to the children of the wealthy and close hearted Captain Georg Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer).  The pair clash immediately over how to raise the Captain’s children, the Captain preferring strict discipline whilst Maria wants to let the children run free singing throughout Salzburg dressed in former curtains no less!  Naturally they are hot for one another, but they must overcome jealous Baroness Eberfeld (Doris Lloyd) and Maria’s indecision wether to Nun or not to Nun.  And when they do find happiness they must overcome the most insidious obstacle of all – Nazis! 

The Sound Of Music is a masterpiece of cinema no matter your opinion on musicals.  The cast mesh together beautifully, Plummer and Andrews have a fine onscreen chemistry, and their coupling is believable and engaging.  The children are annoyingly cute and chipper – not to mention great singers – and all in one family, who would have thought!  Indeed the songs are all catchy numbers you will find yourself humming along to despite your better judgement.   

Even if you are not a fan of musicals you will be able to enjoy the visual splendour of the film, from the grand architecture to the sweeping mountain landscapes.  The Sound Of Music will draw you in, and make you easily forget the 3 hour run time; the DVD even gives you an intermission just like the original screening!  Mountains, music and Nazis who would have thought they would go so well together? 

Special features on include a sing-along option wherein you can sing along to the songs on screen much like karaoke; or select them individually to sing-along to.  Two audio commentaries are included, one with director Robert Wise and the other with the cast and crew (comprising interviews edited together rather than the participants sitting in a darkened room watching the film together).  Love it or hate it the Sound of Music is an enduring classic, beautifully restored so that all can enjoy for generations to come.
