As it is in Heaven
I have heard angels sing and they sounded just like the closing scene of this movie.
The lead character, Daniel, urges his choir to just 'listen' and then pull the sound down from heaven. To me this movie represented a many faceted prism of humanity - such pure love in all its forms from Lena,the story of courage from Gabrielle emerging from being beaten in her marriage to re-claiming her life, Ingers released sexuality and her husbands Stig, the pastors' repressed sexuality. Arne, Tore, Olga,Siv - each character a part of a rich community psyche.Each character finds their self as they find their sound. Self discovery, singing and soul. Daniel dies at the moment he realises his greatest dream - of people hearing the sounds of heaven.
