It’s strange but when I was young my very favourite all time movie was “The Sound of Music”. Now, reflecting on that I’m wondering why? I’m sure at the time I would have said how much I loved the music, the uplifting air of the whole storyline. But now I’m starting to analyse what were the relationships that really moved me and struck a chord?
My conclusions? It seems stranger still to put my hand up and admit that I think subconciously I must have aligned myself completely with Maria. A little lost, a little uncertain of my direction, full of life and a certain naivity. Little wonder then that my Knight in shinning armour turned out to be Christopher Plummer!
