A Man Called Ove (2017)
Saturday 2nd September 2017
Based on the international bestseller by Fredrik Backman, Hannes Holm's A Man Called Ove has received widespread international acclaim since premiering on the festival circuit, picking up multiple accolades, including a European Film Award for Best European Comedy and two Oscar® nominations.
An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, Ove (Rolf Lassga?rd) is the quintessential angry old man next door. Having entirely given up on life, his day s are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his wife Sonja's grave.
But when a boisterous young family moves in next door, immediately incurring his wrath, things take an unexpected turn. Pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her lively children are the complete antithesis of what ill-tempered Ove thinks he needs - and yet, from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship blooms and Ove's past happiness and heartbreaks come to light.
A Man Called Ove, released on DVD and Blu-ray 16th October 2017 by Thunderbird Releasing is a wistful, heart-warming tale of unreliable first impressions and a wonderful reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared.
