A Man Called Ove

Director: Hannes Holm.
Starring: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Ida Engvoll. Sweden 2015. 116 mins. Swedish/Persian with English subtitles.

Having lost his wife, his job and social status in short order, world-class curmudgeon Ove (Lassgård) has given up on everything – including himself. The quintessential ‘angry old man next door’, he spends his days aggressively enforcing laughably strict neighbourhood by-laws and chatting sorrowfully to his wife at her graveside. But an unlikely friendship with boisterous new neighbours obliges him to re-evaluate his devoutly negative approach to life.
