A MAN CALLED OVE

En man som heter Ove

Trailer
Directed by Hannes Holm
Sweden, 2015
Comedy, Drama
      Swedish
      English, French

Synopsis

Ove is your typical angry old man next door. Enter a lively young family who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms, exemplifying a tale of unreliable first impressions and the reminder that life is sweeter when shared.

Our take

Nominated for two Oscars (and a box office hit in its home country!), this lovingly crafted tragicomedy offers a refreshing take on cross-generational friendship. Poignantly capturing the sense of nostalgia that comes with old age, A Man Called Ove offers a powerful ode to the act of sharing.
