A gem of a black comedy from Sweden, a hit with audiences and critics alike. A retired man’s raison d’etre is enforcing the rules in a small-town block of flats. He’s not popular and he doesn’t care. A new neighbour arrives, a free-spirited woman from Iran with two kids, and Ove finds he has a new focus for his crossness. A beautifully directed and performed film that shows how people can be brought back from the brink by friendship and when people are isolated and angry there’s sometimes a reason for that.
This was Sweden’s nomination for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar 2017, see it before the Hollywood remake with Tom Hanks!
‘Strong contender for feel-good film of the year.’ David Hughes, Empire
