Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman s international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential indignant old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife s grave, Ove has given up on life. Enter a boisterous young circle of relatives next door who by accident flattens Ove s mailbox at the same time as moving in and earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to have in mind Ove s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it is shared. One in every of Sweden’s biggest in the neighborhood-produced box administrative center hits ever, director Hannes Holm finds the beating heart of his source material and Swedish star Rolf Lassgård, whose performance won him the Best Actor award on the 2016 Seattle Int l Film Festival, affectingly embodies the lovable curmudgeon Ove.
