      One of the most magical films ever made, and also one of those entertaining ones that magage to make a point about life besides, Disney’s Mary Poppins truly never ages but can be enjoyed equally as much as an adult as when a child. Actually, there are things in this beautiful film that I was not able to appreciate or understand until I grew older.

      Telling the story of the Banks family and the integration, somewhat forced upon the father, of the new


      nanny Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews). Having exhausted a long line of nannies already, Mr. Banks (David Tomlinson) accepts Mary to look after Jane and Michael. He is then made an unwanted listener to their stories of popping into chalk pictures, and roof-top excursions with Mary’s beau, Bert (Dick Van Dyke). It is Mary who gives these children love and attention for the first time and this is the true source of her power in many ways. It is her true magic, however,

      • to reunite the Banks and show them the importance of family. She does all this with a spoonful of magic.

        The special effects in the film are first-rate and must have been something to see in the 1960’s when the film was released. However, it is the lesson of the true meaning of love and compassion that gives the film its heart. Mary and Bert are able to teach Jane, Michael and Mr. Banks how they all need love to survive and each

        other.

        One of the film’s most moving moments is when Bert shows Mr. Banks the error of his ways with a few poignant lines sung, be it in Dyke’s questionable accent, in a song.

        Speaking of which, the music is instantly burned into the memory. Even those who haven’t had the pleasure of seeing the film, will probably be able to hum Chim Chim Cher-ee. Although, I’d still recommend them to see the film so they know the wonderful film that birthed such unforgettable melodies.
