Movie Review: Mary Poppins

A magic nanny comes to work for a cold banker's unhappy family.

Since it's Christmas time, our TV is airing many old movies. One of those was Mary Poppins, and since I haven't seen it before, I decided to watch it now.

The movie was great for many reasons. The acting was amazing, the songs lovely, in a way that the songs are stucking into your head and they have something to say, and the costumes were beautiful.

I liked the idea of having both animation and real-life actors in one scene, it was unique and very funny, in a way that it's not boring and more appealing to the kids. Mary Poppins was a marvellous woman, she could make the kids listen to her without shouting or yelling, but with singing to them and making them understand in a good way and she could make the others do as she said without them noticing. Bert was gret too. He had many talents and really liked Mary Poppins. As for the parents, I think they were just busy in what they were doing and the kids were not naughty, they just wanted their parents to pay a little attention to them.

I'm not the only one thinking that the movie was great. It was nominated for 13 Oscars, and it won 5 of them, including Best Special Effects, though in your eyes and mine would look little fake, but it's 1964, Best Actress for Julie Andrews and Best Song for "Chim Chim Cher-ee", my personal favourite.

It's the last day of this year, I'm not going to able to write anything else today, so I wish you all A Very Happy New Year and since I have nothing else to say, I salute you with the world's biggest word: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
