English (English subtitles)


The stunning Austrian mountains provide the backdrop for this wartime musical extravaganza which opens with novice nun Maria spinning around on the hills. She straightens up however, when she's asked to look after the children of a rich widower, Captain Von Trapp. Maria is horrified at how strictly he treats the kids and soon works her magic on the family, who all fall for her charms. The story takes a sinister turn, however, when the Nazis arrive in Austria, demanding the captain's services, and the family must plot its escape.
