Oh Happy Day

Hella Joof, Denmark, 2004

98 min.DK/Feature

Hannah, who has few expectations, is a woman not quite out of her prime. She's resigned herself to living with her husband and son in a small nondescript town. When she wins tickets to a gospel concert at her local cathedral, all hell - or heaven - breaks loose. And not just for her - there's Jackson too, a black gospel priest, who unwittingly finds himself stranded in Hannah's town. Soon everything is turned on its head and Hannah, rediscovers feelings she'd forgotten she had, as well as a God-given talent, which she had reluctantly hidden away.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
