Ove, an ill-tempered, grumpy, loner spends his days enforcing association rules in his housing complex and visiting his wife’s grave. He’s finally given up on life just as an unlikely friendship develops with his boisterous new neighbours. Friendship is a funny thing, old ones can be healed and new ones can be surprising…
“A Man Called Ove hits all of the genre’s sweet spots, without ever tipping into the saccharine.” Globe and Mail.
“Holm’s adaptation is a darkly funny, tragic, and ultimately heartwarming tearjerker about the life of one lonely but extraordinary man.” Entertainment Weekly.
“Sweet and flinty in roughly equal measure.” Chicago Tribune.
