The Sound of Music (Five Star Collection)

The Sound of Music (Five Star Collection)

It might be easier to come up with a list of reasons NOT to love The Sound of Music than to come up with a list of reasons to love it. I mean, what's not to love about this movie? It's got it all: a guitar-playing heroine who can make clothing out of old drapes, children who sing and then march off to bed, and a dreamy-eyed hero. Just in case we're limited as to how long we can blather on in these reviews, I'm going to tell you the thing I love most about this movie: the scene in the Pavillion. Sigh. I don't want to spoil the moment for the three people on the planet who haven't seen the movie, heard about the movie, or read about the movie yet, so I'm not going to say anything more except this: everyone should own a copy of this movie (even die-hard cynics -- especially die-hard cynics), because it's a classic, feel-good movie. Enough said.

The film is based on the Orphean myth and on Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. It tells the story of a young, English poet Christian who falls in love with the star of the Moulin Rouge, cabaret actress and courtesan Satine. Both characters break out into love songs of all my favorite hits.

Couldn't figure out how I hadn't seen any reviews of it. Recently did a theater version, so it's a tale dear to my heart. It's a timeless family story. A musical but well-timed. Classic!

This is the remarkable story about life in 1931 Berlin from the perspective of a group of bonne vivants at the Kit Kat Club nightclub. At the centre of the tale is the American Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli), her lover Brian (Michael York) and the nightclub's Master of Ceremonies played by the scene-stealing Joel Grey. As the economic, social and political situation in Germany deteriorates, the gang at the Kit Kat Club try to distract their patrons and themselves from what is happening. Cabaret won 8 Academy Awards in 1972. The songs are absolute classics and performed with the perfect amount of emotion, glee and sensuality, the costumes are dramatic and its easy to forget that this was made in the early 70s. A love song to the decadent side to Berlin, it's a truly remarkable film.
