Main Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Filip Berg

Meet Ove (Rolf Lassgård), an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse – the quintessential angry old man next door. Having entirely given up on life, his days are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his beloved wife Sonja’s grave. Ove’s somewhat content existence is disrupted, however, with the arrival of a boisterous young family who move in next door. Heavily pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her lively children are the complete antithesis of what ill-tempered Ove thinks he needs. Yet, from this unhappy beginning an unlikely friendship blooms and Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks come to light. A Man Called Ove is a wistful, heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and a wonderful reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.
