Jan, recently released from prison after serving time for the murder of a child, has always maintained his innocence and is ready to put the past behind him. A gifted organist, he takes a job at an Oslo church under his middle name, Thomas. His talent and gentle manner quickly earn him the respect of his superiors, as well as the love of the pastor, Anna. Thomas even overcomes his initial panic to return the affection of Anna's young son, Jens. But his past catches up with him when Agnes, a local teacher, comes to the church on a school visit and recognizes the organist as Jan, the young man who was convicted for the murder of her son.

Very good movie, but not a horror movie. At all. As a film, I'd give it 4 stars. As a horror movie, it's only worth a couple skulls lol.
A heart wrenchingly beautiful portrayal of loss, grief, suffering, forgiveness, and moving forward.
Wonderfully done although I would have loved that it had ended with the recovery of the boy's bones and clothing. It would have been a gift to the mother to have a place for him.
