22 November 2004 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

This movie marries two highly unlikely subjects: Danish small-town life and gospel music.

Moses Jackson, leader of an American gospel choir, is stranded in a (very) provincial danish village after his bus crashes - because of Hannah, neglected wife and singer in a rather amateurish danish choir. Jackson decides to work with the choir and takes them on a musical and spiritual journey that enriches everybody's life.

A very high feel-good factor, some wonderful dialogue, and the undeniable screen-appeal of gospel music combine to make this a very enjoyable movie.
