"A strong contender for feel-good film of the year" - Empire Magazine


Sweden’s smash hit and Academy Award nominated film, Hannes Holm’s A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s best-selling novel.

Ove (Rolf Lassgard) is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing housing association rules that only he cares about and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life. But when pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her young family move next door, his solitary, regimented world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined, and from inauspicious beginnings an unlikely friendship forms. What emerges is a heart-warming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.
