As It Is In Heaven

As It Is In Heaven

A successful international conductor suddenly interrupts his career and returns alone to his childhood village in the far north of Sweden. He is soon asked to come along, listen and give advice to the fragment of a church choir. He can't say no, and from that moment, nothing in the village is the same again as he develops and grows the choir. He makes both friends and enemies. And he finds love. This was Sweden's entry for best foreign film at the 2006 Academy Awards.

A well-worn story but it's nicely handled here, blending high drama and moments of farce with some splendid music and a od love story...

This film has been playing for ages, reminiscent of Gloomy Sunday's run around the country. One of the greats.

The most inspiring film I have ever seen about the deep connectedness we can feel with each other, the misunderstandings and tragedy caused by bigotry/prejudice/jealousy and the triumph of love and the human spirit. The finale of the film is the most touching and moving five minutes you will have ever witnessed!

An enchanting story about how the return to a small community of a man of international aclaim, Daniel who suffers a major heart attack while performing, changes the townsfolk. The lives, loves and interpersonal tensions could not have been predicted, and all this while Daniel commits himself to training the church choir and has to overcome his own fears....
