Could not recommend highly enough. Bears watching more than once without doubt.
Watching it is a spiritual journey. I was moved by the protagonist's quest to find and arouse the individual note in each person singing in his choir, and to compose a piece of music which would open the hearts. I know people who went back to the cinema for 8 nights in a row, when it opened in Germany, and it has become a cult movie in New Zealand and Australia.
The cold Swedish landscape is a wonderful counterpoint to the heartwarming experience of watching damaged human beings bloom into ripeness through the healing power of love and singing.
It was true... a wonderfully acted movie, with strong characters that you feel empathy with. It was a shame the film had to end... I could have sat in that world for another hour easily.
