1. Nobody in Austria has seen The Sound of Music. Nobody.
Why the story of the Von Trapp family has become such a symbol for what living in Austria is like will be forever a mystery. Fact is not a single Austrian has seen this movie. Nobody. Nada. Zip. It feels like being confronted with a documentary about your country that everyone else seems to have watched and taken for face value. For the uneducated: There is no singing on hills. Period.
