I needed to re-watch this for professional reasons. I will take American guests to Salzburg on several occasions this year and there’s a whole Sound Of Music day excursion planned as well. The strangest thing is that Austrians don’t seem to know about the existence and success of this movie. Apart from those working in tourism in and around Salzburg of course. But ask anyone in Vienna about this massive blockbuster hit from the sixties and they won’t know what you’re talking about it.

The Sound Of MusicĀ is the kind of movie that you’ve seen a dozen of times as a child, because they play it every single year on television during the christmas holidays. Almost all of the songs from the movie have become classics. Even if you haven’t seen the production, you’ll recognize at least a few tracks. But is it really a good movie?

Well…. it’s pure nostalgia. It’s corny. It’s cheesy. It’s fun. In fact, it’s a must. Let’s leave it at that.
