Synopsis

It is unlikely that any synopsis of this portrait of a small-town men's choir will convey just how affecting and inspirational this documentary is. The most successful film ever at the Norwegian box office, it follows the engaging group of men (ranging in age from late twenties to mid-nineties!) around their home town of Finnmark and on to their busy round of concerts. Theirs is the harshest of landscapes in which to survive, but they do so with such an indomitable pride that you'll be left in awe of their respect for nature and companionship, and in the power of the human voice.
