A MAN CALLED OVE
EN MAN SOM HETER OVE
2016, Music Box Films, 116 min, Sweden, Dir: Hannes Holm

One of Sweden's biggest locally-produced box office hits ever, this adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s international best-selling novel is as heartwarming as it is morbidly funny. Isolated retiree Ove (Rolf Lassgård) spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about and visiting his wife’s grave. But when a boisterous young family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox, it’s the beginning of an unlikely friendship. “The dopes saying that movies are dead haven’t seen the moving, tender A MAN CALLED OVE.” - Nick Schager, Village Voice.
