Oh Happy Day

  Hannah (Lotte Andersen) is a typical Danish housewife who has come to terms with a lot of sour and with no aspirations in a small Danish provincial town. The only thing her husband is still sharp, his work and his model, and her son is slowly fledged. Here is the weekly rehearsal of the local church choir with her friend, Grethe (Ditte Gråbøl) was the only welcome change, even if the song comes along plenty tired and uninspired. The gain of two tickets for the concert of a real American gospel choir has since been the highlight of the year and her friends are overwhelmed by the stirring music and exuberant vitality of the black musicians.

Driven in a trance and Hannah ride home – and gets out of sheer reverie the tour bus of the choir in their way. Following is a hard stop with consequences: Hannah, although unhurt, but precisely the (of course damn good-looking) cantor Moses Jackson (Malik Yoba), injured and can not continue with the tour for now. He must then cure to the hospital and his injuries – a situation with which both the latent racist city and the smart singer are completely overwhelmed.

The intrepid Grethe invites professional musicians to simply test their church choir book. Where has he been times when he can possibly give them the much-needed inspiration! Hannah wants with shame in the soil sink. But the miracle happens: The next time sample is Moses Jackson in the small church and listening to their very own interpretation of the classic “Oh Happy Day ‘to – which is at least as far away from gospel, such as Denmark, of Harlem. But Jackson is touched by the spiritual and musical naivety of these cute, unworldly man. And he found Hannah’s great vocal talent – and the wonderful personality that hides behind its conservative nature. Moses Jackson decides to get close to the Danish church choir the rhythm, the spirit and soul of the Gospel to: Gospel for beginners! And when the charismatic and determined the alcohol Moses precisely the conservative-leaning Hannah on the new choir director, which is something of a revival experience. Praise the Lord!

Oh Happy Day is a fresh and rousing comedy about the everyday routine, in which we all put the power of music and talent hidden in every one of us, they have only discovered and be Reawaking. A message that just fits perfectly into the Christmas season. The soundtrack of the way, took care of the Eighties icon Rick Astley ( Never Gonna Give You Up ), which not many would have expected so much inspiration. But the Gospel has made equally to all. Another tip: If you plan to attend a concert by a gospel choir to be careful on the way home – it could change your life.
