My mother always wanted a girl - she had 4 sons instead… me being the oldest. Not deterred by her lack of female offspring, she set out to show us every estrogen-rich movie out there - Shirley Temple movies, Anne of Green Gables, etc… and every musical she could find - including the one that haunts my dreams: The Sound of Music. Damn it to hell.
Beautifully shot: every scene has amazing scenery and sets and is perfectly composed. Characters are inconsistent, with everyone playing exaggerated cartoons at the beginning but becoming a lot more nuanced and interesting right about at the point where the baroness arrives. It's from this point onwards that it becomes a much more interesting film, building up to quite a tense ending, though you have to overlook the Nazis who are outmaneuvered by exiting stage right. One thing that remains consistent are the songs, which are saccharine drivel.
No wonder the Nazis lost the war… they couldn't catch a bunch of singing kids and a nun. Useless.
