Not Your Sound of Music Salzburg
17 May 2018 | by anderson471780See all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2018 Nashville Film Festival. This was an incredible true story of the love between a mother and her son as she struggles with the pain of drug addiction. I have been to Salzburg a couple of times, it was strange to see this city from the inside of the drug culture rather than the perspective of a tourist. This is not the Sound of Music Salzburg. Warning this movie is not for the faint of heart, soul-crushing drug addiction is on full display.

You will cringe at the situations this mother puts her 7 year old son in, but through it all the enduring love of a mother and son carry this film with great effect.
