I have loved the Sound of Music since I was a young girl. The innocence of Maria and her naivety is simple and pure. The Captain is incredibly handsome. He was the man I wanted to marry. Tall, dark and handsome. Stong yet gentle is a very attractive trait.
What holds the magic about this movie that keeps me watching it over and over? Partly, because the era is intriguing, the evil Nazi's, loyalty to one's country, family, faith, unrequited love, and pure joy and the delightful music.
The passionate part of the movie is when Captain Von Trapp admits to Maria his love for her in this beautiful glass gazebo. You can feel the intense longing of one another. The yearning for that love, but it is done in such a tasteful manner that rarely has been duplicated since. It is just pure magic filled with the soft moonlight dancing around them. You can just smell the flowers in bloom, feel the romance, the passion. That is magic, pure magic and it gets me every time.
