Så Som i Himmelen

As It Is in Heaven

(Sweden/Denmark, 2004, 132 minutes)

A world-class violinist and conductor retires to his home village in Sweden, and regains his love of life by accepting to direct the local church choir. Superbly accomplished inspirational tearjerker, soberly handled, scripted and acted, that pushes all the right buttons without ever descending into schmaltz.
