I have been a movie goer for 60 years. 'Foreign' films have always been favorites of mine. This is the best movie I have ever seen, ever. The gentle wheat-field in the intro, sets the mood, to relax, listen, and let the magic of awakening weave it's spell. The messages that Kay Pollak imparts during the story are timeless. If you approach this story with an open mind, and put away any pr-conceived ideas about human behavior,you will get the most out of this movie. I saw it, as a journey of a very badly damaged inner-child, the place where all our emotions lie, deep within, sometimes so broken, that we actually cannot feel, or give love. Our bodies rebel by getting very ill. Daniel was such a person. As he says early in the movie, "Music is all I know". So it was. The story is presented in a series of vignettes, I don't see how it could have been otherwise. It worked. The casting was superb. Some of the characters were not professional actors, they didn't need to be. If you never see another movie, see this one. Lesley, Sydney,Australia

A successful international conductor suddenly interrupts his career and returns alone to his childhood village in Norrland, in the far north of Sweden. It doesn't take long before he is asked to come and listen to the fragment of a church choir, which practises every Thursday in the parish hall. Just come along and give a little bit of good advice. He can't say no, and from that moment, nothing in the village is the same again. The choir develops and grows. He makes both friends and enemies. And he finds love.

Magnificent and Moving MasterpieceReviewed bylarch-4Vote: 10/10
This film, recently voted as an audience favorite at the 2005 Palm Springs International Film Festival, is inspiring and moving. A famous conductor, forced to retire by illness, returns to the small village of his birth to become the leader of the church choir, and finally find fulfillment in his music. Drawing on Sweedish traits of keeping things within oneself and of the insular character of a small Swedish village, this film develops each of its characters well. superbly directed, acted and sung, it brought tears to many eyes, and smiles to all. Hopefully it will find distribution in the United States.
If you can, see it!
A beautiful film, touching profoundly up the simple, yet divine aspects of humanity.
This movie was almost perfect, and seeing as nothing in this world can be truly perfect, that is pretty good. The only minor thing I subjectively object to, is the pacing at some points in the middle of the story. The acting is also very good, and all the actors easily top actors in high-profile films. The actual directing seems to have been well thought through, and the script must have been amazing. There are some truly breathtaking moments of foreshadowing, and a quite gorgeous continuing circular composition of the story.
The moment in the movie, when the main character achieves that feeling of being in heaven is the perfect ending to a truly brilliant yarn.
