Much more than comedy
30 December 2007 | by (Schleswig, Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is being sold as a comedy and that was what I expected to see. To my (very positive) astonishment it proved to have a much wider range of appeal. There were very amusing episodes and dialog, but mainly to me it appeared to be a movie about growing up (even if late in life). Hannah's emotionally been on the run since in her youth she backed out on a chance to fulfill a dream of singing publicly. She's pretending to herself that she is content with her married family life, but when she accidentally meets the leader of an American baptist choir and he volunteers to direct her little, amateurish parish choir dams starts breaking in her mind. She (and the audience) is confronted with existential questions of self confidence and faith. This is all dealt with in a way that You start forgetting this is just a movie and not real life. It ends on a feel-good level, but not all conflicts are solved. And when: not always like one would suspect.
