Sound Of Music

The most widely seen movie produced by a Hollywood studio, The Sound of Music grows fresher with each viewing. Though it was planned meticulously in pre-production (save for the scene where Maria and the children take a dipping in an Austrian lake that nearly cost a life), on each viewing one is struck anew by the spontaneous almost improvisatory air of the acting, notably of Julie Andrews under Robert Wise's direction.

There are also the little human touches he brings to, for instance, the scene where Maria leads the children to the hills, over bridges and along tow paths where the smallest boy trips up and momentarily gets left behind: it creates a feeling that most of us have encountered.

From the opening pre-credit sequence of muted excitement as the camera roves over the Austrian Alps (photographed in magnificent colour), where little phrases from the wind instruments on the soundtrack are flung as if on the breeze, foreshadowing the title song to follow, the production never puts a foot wrong.

Captain von Trapp is an autocratic widower whose strict household rules leave little room for music and merriment, that is until Maria (Julie Andrews) arrives. After leaving the convent Maria takes the job as governess to Captain von Trapp's sevenchildren, and brings light and merriment into their lives.This heart-warming true story features some of the world's best-loved songs and went on to win five Academy Awards, including Best Picture

Great quality, fast delivery

Great quality item. This is one of my favourite movies, especially if I'm in a depressed mood. I've seen it at least seven times and plan to watch it about ten more times!

Still an excellent film. What a pleasure to watch a film with a good moral story
