WEAK SEQUEL TO "DIE TRAPP FAMILIE"
29 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This sequel to "Die Trapp Familie" tells the story of the Von Trapps after their immigration to the USA; this could have been a nice follow-up, but it seems as Wolfgang Liebeneiner did it without much interest and at least with little inspiration, but he had also to deal with a weaker script than with "Die Trapp Familie"; the producer should have used Georg Hurdalek again. The film proceeds awkwardly from one situation to the other and has little dramatic atmosphere; scene in Vermont: a walk, they find a house, "yes, we buy the house", end of scene, next scene. Again there is good music by Franz Grothe, including some music in the Gershwin idiom. Ruth Leuwerik is fine again as Maria; in the last shot she addresses (as in "Die Trapp Familie") directly the viewer this time saying "Auf Wiedersehen", probably hinting at a second sequel which luckily was never made.
