      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..."

    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...

    Movie quotes

    • Maria: I'd like to thank each and every one of you for the precious gift you left in my pocket today.

      Captain von Trapp: Um, what gift?

      Maria: It's meant to be a secret, Captain, between the children and me.

      Captain von Trapp: Uh-huh. Then I suggest that you keep it, and let us eat.

      Maria: Knowing how nervous I must have been, a stranger in a new household, knowing how important it was for me to feel accepted. It was so kind and thoughtful of you to make my first moments here so warm and happy and... pleasant.

      [All the while, the children look guilty. Marta starts to cry]

      Captain von Trapp: What is the matter, Marta?

      Marta: Nothing.

      [Louisa, Brigitta and Gretl join in, while Liesl, Friedrich and Kurt continue to look guilty]

      Captain von Trapp: Uh, Fräulein... is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you, uh, intend leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of... indigestion?

      Maria: Oh, they're all right, Captain. They're just happy.

      [All of the girls, except Liesl, continue to cry out of guilt]

    • Maria: Children can't do all the things they're supposed to if they have to worry about spoiling their precious clothes.

      Captain von Trapp: They haven't complained yet.

      Maria: Well, they wouldn't dare! They love you too much. They *fear* you too much!

      Captain von Trapp: I don't wish you to discuss my children in this manner.

      Maria: Well, you've got to hear from someone! You're never home long enough to know them.

      Captain von Trapp: I said I don't want to hear anymore from you about my children!

      Maria: I know you don't, but you've got to! Now, take Liesl.

      Captain von Trapp: [hesitatingly] You will not say one word about Liesl, Fraulein.

      Maria: She's not a child anymore, and one of these days, you're going to wake up and find that she's a woman. You won't even know her. And Friedrich, he's a boy, but he wants to be a man and there's no one to show him how.

      Captain von Trapp: Don't you dare tell me about my son.

      Maria: Brigitta could tell you about him if you let her get close to you. She notices everything.

      Captain von Trapp: Fraulein...

      Maria: And Kurt pretends he's tough not to show how hurt he is when you brush him aside,

      Captain von Trapp: That will do!

      Maria: the way you do all of them. Louisa I don't even know about yet,

      Captain von Trapp: I said that will do!

      Maria: but somebody has to find out about her, and the little ones just want to be loved. Oh, please, Captain, love them! Love them all!

      Captain von Trapp: I don't care to hear anything further from you about my children.

      Maria: I am not finished yet, Captain!

      Captain von Trapp: Oh, yes, you are, Captain!

      [pauses, then corrects himself]

      Captain von Trapp: Fraulein!

    • Marta: Why doesn't father turn the motor on?

      Kurt: [agitated] Because he doesn't want anybody to hear us!

      Captain von Trapp: Shh!

      Louisa von Trapp: What will Frau Schmidt and Franz said when they discover we're gone?

      Maria: They'll be able to answer truthfully they didn't know anything about it if anyone asks them.

      Louisa von Trapp: Will we be coming back here?

      Maria: Someday, Liesl. I do hope someday.

      Gretl: Are Father and Uncle Max going to push the car all the way to Switzerland?

      Maria: Shh!
