Seen on German TV
23 April 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film on German TV. The German TV guide gives it a "thumbs down". But it's fun to compare this story with what one sees in "Sound of Music", and the shots of 1950s New York City are great. The musical leader of the Trapp Family Singers is a priest. He tries to get the group gigs singing nothing but church music, but of course it doesn't work. If I recall correctly, an agent hears the family singing folk music by chance, and hires them. In both this film and the film that preceded it, the actors sing the same music that the Von Trapp Family sang, not Rodgers and Hammerstein. I don't know if this is available with English subtitles.
