The Sound of Music

My Rating: 8/10

Weird eeh?! To think that it is a musical that was filmed on 1965. So why The Sound of Music and not a movie that was just shown recently?

My daughter RJ got a DVD of The Sound of Music from the file of DVDs left by her Ninang Ache who migrated to Germany. She played it and because she is a natural music lover, she liked it. She played it over and over while dancing and singing with Fraulein Maria and the Family Von Trapp. Maria is a novice who left an Austrian convent and became a governess to the 7 mischievous children of a Naval officer widower Capt. Georg Von Trapp. Maria fell in-love with Capt. Von Trapp who was about to marry a Baroness. But the captain found himself falling in-love with Maria as well. To make the long story short, they got married and lived happily ever after.

I have seen this musical years ago and did not like it. How come my daughter, an 8 year old girl, liked it sooo much? I got intrigued so I sat and watched with her the other day. It was only then that I appreciate it. You can feel the romance…the music and cinematography are top notch. Watching my daughter dancing and seeing her with such happiness while singing made me appreciate more the Sound of Music. It is sure is one of the best films of all time…a film that is perfect for our TCP theme today, familial love.

Weird Yet Fascinating

Before I learned about Chuck (Zachary Levi) and aside from Brad Pitt, Nicholas Cage is my most-loved in Hollywood. I know some people hate him because of his weird and crazy acts like having odd collections of stuffed lizards, snakes and octopus, having his own pyramid tomb where he plans to be buried, naming his […]
