A Man Called Ove (15)
Dir: Hannes Holm, Swe, 2015, 116 mins, Swedish dialogue with subtitles

A masterful adaptation of Frederick Backman’s bestseller of the same name. A grieving widower’s attempts to end his life and join his wife in the afterlife keep being interrupted by his neighbours, with whom he develops an unexpected friendship that brightens his life. A dark, tragicomic and, ultimately, heart-warming drama that has become a box office sensation in Sweden.
