A Man Called Ove

In this offbeat Swedish comedy drama, Ove is the quintessential grumpy old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, Ove spends his days scowling and enforcing neighbourhood association rules that only he cares about. However, when Parvaneh and her young family move in next door, his solitary, regimented world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined and an unlikely friendship develops. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions, eccentric behaviour and a gentle reminder that life can be sweeter when it’s shared.
