A LIFE OF MUSIC (CINEMA 2015) (Length: 98 Minutes)




Agathe von Trapp is growing up happily with her six siblings on a splendid estate near Salzburg. But after their mother's premature death, Agathe – the eldest of seven children, who loves singing more than anything else – decides to never sing again. Then Maria enters the life of Georg, the von Trapp patriarch, as governess and as new woman at his side. Agathe is jealous of Maria, but the fascist threat spreading throughout Europe binds the two women in an effort to protect their family.

Meanwhile, Agathe's acquaintanceship with a great singer helps her rediscover her voice. World politics enter the von Trapp home as a passionate Hitler supporter must confront a member of the Resistance... Since Georg has lost his entire fortune, Maria and Agathe organize the first fund-raising von Trapp family concert at the Salzburg Festival. The concert is a success, but the family has defied the stage ban imposed on the family by the fascists, and they must flee in the dark of night.
