Heaven in Norrland

August 13, 2010

Speaking of movies, tonight’s movie here at St. Peter’s (Friday, Aug. 13 at 7 pm in the narthex) is the recent Swedish film, “As It Is In Heaven.” I’ve not seen it but having just watched the montage below of scenes from the film and having read the following synopsis, I really want to check it out.

A successful international conductor suddenly interrups 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.
