Så Som I Himmelen * Kay Pollak (2004)

My girlfriend’s boss bought this film for all his personel, so I guess that outside TV and cinema, this was the best-watched film last weekend in these parts! “As It Is In Heaven” is about a successfull conductor who at the peak of his carreer has a heart attack and decides to quit. He goes back to the tiny village where he was pestered away as a boy, but with his artists name. Starting on his own, he soon feels the need to be part of the small community and he offers to lead the church choir, since everybody knows he is that famous conductor anyway. Never having orchestred a choir, Daniel tries to learn how to do this and his new methods leads the villagers away from the town pastor and to Daniel. How new elements in a conservative surrounding brings change, a thing that people usually fear. “As It Is In Heaven” is a drama, not really boring and the presence of the beautiful Frida Hallgren helps too.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
