A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove

 PG-13    | 2 Hours  1 Minute | Comedy – Drama

Director: Hannes Holm

Writer: Fredrik Backman (novel), Hannes Holm

Starring: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün

SUBTITLED FILM

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 and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.

Critics Consensus: A Man Called Ove’s winsome sincerity — and Rolf Lassgård’s affectingly flinty performance in the title role — keep it from succumbing to excess sentimentality.
