Where's the rest of the story?
29 January 2018 | by mike48128See all my reviews

Disappointing only because it covers the basic story from Austria to the family's escape. Appears to be mostly true, but I question some of the events which may have been enhanced for dramatic effect. Also a bit preachy at times as it tries to explain the political divide between the Nazis and the "Democratic Party" as it is called. The horrible British accents and slang that "creeps into" the dialog. "On the Dole" is a very British phrase and I would not expect an Austrian to use it. The typical British "Drawl" invades the actor's performances, although many players appear to be Austrian (or German). I find it very hard-to-believe that the Nazis broke into the mansion at exactly the same moment that the Von Trapp Family fled. It is somewhat known that in reality the family left the country by train and did not really "hike over the Alps". I was also disappointed that very little is mentioned about their music career after leaving home. Their "summer camps" and touring in America and eventually settling in Vermont, and opening up a concert center and ski lodge there. I have read the other book "My Story" by Maria, and it covers all of this and more. Still an enjoyable biography with excellent sets and very authentic-looking locations. However, where is the American Ski Lodge shown in the film? Certainly not in Montana, as noted in the credits. More realistic to-be-sure than the "sugar-coated fairy tale" known as the Sound of Music. Worth at least a one-time view, but maybe not a "keeper"?
