Aroview: A feelgood arthouse hit about a renowned classical music conductor who rediscovers his roots in the far north of Sweden.

Acquiring a rundown school-house, he soon finds himself reluctantly involved with a rag-tag village choir. Set in the Yuletide season, this indeed plays like the filmic equivalent of a Christmas Carol - broadly appealing through its simplicity, familiarity, and shameless sentimentalism. That said, Scrooge-hearts are advised to steer well clear.
