StoryA successful international conductor suddenly interrupts his career and returns to the Northern Sweeden village of Norrland, which is his hometown. It isn't long before he is asked to listen to the fragment that is the town's church choir, which practices every Thursday in the parish hall, and to give them some good advice.
He couldn't say no to this, and before long he's out of his retirement, making friends and foes alike, finding love along the way.
As It Is in Heaven was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year at the 2005 Academy Awards.
