A Man called Ove – Wednesday 24 May 2017
Directed by Hannes Holm
Sweden 2016 (sub-titled)
116 mins Comedy
PG 

Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman's international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife's grave. Ove has given up on life.

Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove's mailbox while moving in, earning his special brand of ire. From this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove's past happiness and heartbreaks.

What emerges is a heart-warming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared.

 

 

Reviews

“A Man Called Ove hits all of the genre's sweet spots, without ever tipping into the saccharine”.
Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

“The moving twists and turns of the love story and the bright comedy elevate an otherwise familiar story line. The mix of genres works, too”.
Stephanie Mary, Washington Post

“It's a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot - and no reticence about telling them so”.
Allisa Simon, Variety
