Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins ★★★★★

Part of Dastardly Difficult December: film nr.104

' Old Year's Day' is what we call the last day of the year here in Holland.

One of the things that goes hand in hand with this day is watching Mary Poppins.

And as I look around the room and see three generations of my family smiling, laughing, singing and being totally captivated by this tale of magic, fantasy and the beauty of childhood, I forget that I'm a cynical dick 90% of the time. There are only a handful of films that can achieve this and this one is probably the best example of them.

And Julie Andrews is a total babe.
