      First time watching The Sound of Music

      From nature to religion, from human feelings to national love, music is really great. The nun brought self-love and love for the family with music, Do Re Mi, so happy, so happy, but what I didn't expect is that Edelweiss has sublimated from the nursery rhyme in my heart to the great love of the country. I'm intoxicated by their music, nervous for their escape, and happy for their future. 55 years have passed, but the voice is still in my ears, every sentence is moved, and I...

      distant memories

      Watching another film "The Sound of Music" after more than 40 years, the emotion is still and timeless. Perhaps, the film once left behind the pictures of characters who touched the depths of the soul, and the soul was serene and peaceful because of their comfort; The sustenance and precious memories are concentrated in the flying melody.
      The director used a dreamlike brush of light and shadow to describe the unique Austrian scenery on the screen, and used the majestic Alps, the vast green...

      Guangzhou Zhongshan Hall stage performance, don't miss it

      Good-looking, great value, you will know when you see it. . No words are used to describe it, it seems flimsy. Maybe this is art. Only by visiting it in person can you know the inner taste.
      In addition to singing in English (with Chinese subtitles) by Western singers and actors, the performance in Guangzhou was accompanied by a Broadway orchestra, in order to allow the audience to enjoy the original performance and to maintain the authenticity of the play. The style of the music makes the...

      music from life

      Putting this movie in the category of classic movies, I don't think there should be any criticism.

      Many years ago, I followed this film into the world of music, and since then I have been constantly practicing and trying to figure it out. From musical instruments to vocal music, from music theory knowledge to self-composed music. All the hardships along the way cannot be attributed to this.
      Live like summer flowers and bloom in spring. It is a pity that contemporary movies are...

      Sing for beauty, freedom, life

      "Yunling sent Cui, just for the sound of the sound of nature, my heart is so excited, just for it to pick up a short piece of music, my heart is ecstatic, like a bird with new feathers flying away, from the lakeside to the branch high perched, I am ecstatic. My heart murmurs like a bell, slowly coming from the church on the wind, laughter is like a gentle stream, meandering and flowing, flowing under the rocks..."

      The perfect fit between sound and shadow can give birth to a classic light and shadow collection like The Sound of Music. The movie is not only about emotions but also about politics and war, but everything it presents is so beautiful. The seven children's natural childish voices are refreshing, and the emotions permeated by the music are abundant and sincere. The beautiful scenery, bel canto and melody weave such a dreamy and beautiful...

      It was the first bowl of chicken soup I had in my life. At the same time, she and Sissi also succeeded in amusing the young and ignorant me: Austria is the only wonderland in Europe. Mozart's hometown of Salzburg is beautiful in the film. Without the songs, castles, and scenery, it is a story of a Cinderella turning over, probably another version of Jane Eyre. The three vulgar truths, goodness and...

    Behind the scenes

    The best candidate for director Robert Wise to play Colonel von Trapp is Yul Brynner (Yul Brynner) . But U Brynner refused the invitation, and Christopher Plummer eventually played the role.
    Because the filming cycle is relatively long, the young actors have grown a lot in the process. In order to make the actors look the same in the shots, the filming team used a lot of small shooting techniques to conceal all of this.
    At the end of the...
