It is the late 1930s in Austria and Maria, played by actress Julie Andrews, is desperately trying to become a nun. Maria took care of the children belonging to Navy captain Georg Von Trapp as a hired governess.

It was very exciting seeing events unfold one by one.
All-in-all, the movie was very well done. The music was catchy and went along perfectly with the various themes and occurrences in the film, the story line had a good theme and plot, the timeline in which the events took place created drama and excitement for me personally, and the actors and actresses performed astoundingly. I'd have to say that one of my personal favorite parts besides "Edelweiss" was the performance and singing of "Do-Re-Mi." It's a very happy and catchy song and I personally enjoyed it as one of my favorite parts in the

Unfortunately, he and his friends have unrealistic ideas about what they are going to face while serving. The movie shows the tragedy of war through the emotional connection characters have, and focuses on the experiences had by the newly enlisted group of friends. I both enjoyed and did not enjoy the movie All Quiet on the Western Front. The parts that I enjoyed included the detail and historical accuracy which could be lined up with the information we have been learning in class.
