The true story of the war exiled family from Salzburg
17 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Romantic story of the lively young novice who falls in love with the Baron and his children. Then, due to the war, they all hit off to America to pursue their singing career. Different from the Julie Andrews version but I can`t say that it is better !
