#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In 1930’s Austria, a young woman named Maria is failing miserably in her attempts to become a nun. When the Navy captain Georg Von Trapp writes to the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job. The Captain’s wife is dead, and he is often away, and runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives — including the Captain’s. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love, even though Georg is already engaged to a Baroness and Maria is still a postulant. The romance makes them both start questioning the decisions they have made. Their personal conflicts soon become overshadowed, however, by world events. Austria is about to come under the control of Germany, and the Captain may soon find himself drafted into the German navy and forced to fight against his own country.
Plot: In the years before the Second World War, a tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey becomes a governess in the home of a widowed naval captain with seven children, and brings a new love of life and music into the home.

Heard great things, got great things.
I’ve said it before, but musicals aren’t my favourite genre – I don’t dislike them at all, but if I were to rank my favourite genres they would probably be down low. Therefore, I always feel uncertain before watching them, knowing they could go either way.
‘The Sound of Music’, though, is a delight. As alluded to, I have obviously heard countless positive things about this film down the years so I’m glad it didn’t disappoint. Despite a potentially damaging 175 minute run time, it absolutely flew by – superb pacing. I will say the last 30-40 minutes do feel like a possibly unnecessary add-on, but it all still makes for entertaining viewing.
How about that soundtrack? So many songs that have seriously passed the test of time in terms of relevance, I had practically heard of them all before despite never setting eyes of the film until now. “My Favorite Things” is the standout in my opinion, but all the music is excellent.
Julie Andrews is terrific in the role of Maria, I will say early on I thought she might’ve been annoying given how excitable she is, but she quickly becomes great to watch throughout. Christopher Plummer is impressive, also. Those two are the clear stars of this, but all the other cast members do worthy jobs too.
It’s, so I read, not completely true to the real life story of Maria von Trapp & Co. However, all I care about is whether it’s an entertaining film – which this undoubtedly is. A must-watch!
One of cinema’s most enduring family classics.
What can one say about a film that now, as it gears towards its next anniversary of a 50th birthday, is loved and adored by so many? It feels, to me at least, kind of redundant trying to even write a review of it now. So really I just want to say that as a mid-forties cinema loving man I revisited the film recently for the first time in about 15 years and found it still had a magical kind of hold over me. Yes I still think it’s too long, but ask me what I would cut out of the film and I’m at a bit of a loss to answer.
Over the last thirty years or so it has become something of a focal point for parody, somewhat diminishing the actual film’s first time appeal. Then there are the charges of it being hackneyed, but they are misplaced and very unfair for The Sound Of Music is an ode to life and music, nothing remotely hackneyed there me thinks. Bookended by stunning Salzburg scenery N/A, the rest in between is a series of brilliant set pieces and some unforgettable Rodgers & Hammerstein tunes. Led by Julie Andrews & Christoher Plummer, the cast delight throughout. Yes, not everyone is note perfect, but it’s a moot point really. As a guy it’s at the one hour ten mark where I get something to hang my coat upon, from there on in the Von Trapp family, and their gorgeous governess, have me hook, line & sinker. The Sound Of Music, one of the greatest screen musicals ever. 9/10
Just a classic that will never get old
Song and dance is definitely not my thing. However I’ve seen this movie dozens and dozens of times overs the years. It never gets old… if you have never seen it it’s well worth your time. They just don’t make them like this anymore. Rent it or buy it, a true classic that is perfect from start to finish…
A tale of courage and love set in World War II (based on a true story)
I grew up admiring Maria Von Trapp. The joy their family had with 7 children. I’m sure it influenced me to want a large family as well.
The integrity that everyone had in the family was incredible. I love any movie where the main man in the movie has principles and sticks to them. This one has principles and courage in spades.
It’s such a completely innocent movie with romance and love being the dominate themes in male/female relationships. This is not a movie in which lust plays any part.
I love the gentle parenting it shows. I love the obedient children it shows.
Talking points: Young love – does it often last? Who do you owe the most allegiance to, God of the government? Do we get blessings in life because of good behavior?
