No. 47: The Sound of Music

The hills are alive

Print Email
(Fox (Home Entertainment))

1965, dir. Robert Wise. The hills are alive with the sound of counter-factual Jewish wish-fulfillment in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s beloved musical, which deflects the tragedy of World War II onto the feel-good story of the von Trapp family. Kitsch bliss.

Erika Potasinski says:

Goodbye to All that describes clearly the problems facing the Jewish Community in Venezuela. They have to think for a solution to the problems they are having. I hope they have not forgoten what the late thirties and early forties showed the Jews.Leave while you can. Look for a better life, dont wait too long. Freedom has no price, take it as long as it reats in in
your hands and souls.
