A MAN CALLED OVE (EN MAN SOM HETER OVE)
Dir HANNES HOLM
SWEEDEN 2015. 116 min.
Ever since his wife died, Ove has promised to join her. If only life didn’t get in the way. His new Iranian neighbours seem to be the final straw, but could they instead be his salvation? Funny, graceful, and deeply moving, this Oscar® nominated delight shows that even a grumpy, narrow-minded old man can learn tolerance and kindness. It hasn’t yet screened at the White House.
With Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Filip Berg.
An irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel…A touching comic crowdpleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end.” Variety
