Based on the international bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman, the Oscar-nominated 'A Man Called Ove' is a wistful, heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and a wonderful reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.
Meet Ove (Rolf Lassgård), an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse - the quintessential angry old man next door. Having entirely given up on life, his days are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his beloved wife Sonja’s grave. Ove’s somewhat content existence is disrupted, however, with the arrival of a boisterous young family who move in next door. Heavily pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her lively children are the complete antithesis of what ill-tempered Ove thinks he needs. Yet, from this unhappy beginning an unlikely friendship blooms and Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks come to light.
