SCA16 A Man Called Ove

15+ 116 MIN


Fredrik Backman’s bestselling book comes to the big screen via filmmaker Hannes Holm (Behind Blue Skies, 2010) and takes the ‘Swedish Oscars’, Guldbagges, by storm.

Ove is the resident curmudgeon of a vibrant suburban housing estate. Despite his ousting as president of the housing co-op a few years ago, he stubbornly maintains vigilant surveillance over his fellow residents, making sure rules of the community are observed and making a nuisance of himself in the process. When a new neighbour, Parvaneh (Bahar Pars), and her family move in next door to Ove, an unexpected and, ultimately, life-saving friendship develops.

Taking over US$20 million since its premiere last year – making it the fifth most popular film in Swedish cinema history – A Man called Ove is a heartwarming and charmingly humorous tale of friendship and community that is sure to delight audiences regardless of age.
