Ove, in his sixties, is the grumpy man in the condominium, former president of the association of co-owners, who nevertheless continues to reign over the district with an iron fist. Faced with the arrival of new & exotic neighbors, he will have to look at his past and open up to the world….
Nominated for two Oscars (and a box office hit in its home country!), this lovingly crafted tragicomedy offers a refreshing take on cross-generational friendship. Poignantly capturing the sense of nostalgia that comes with old age, A Man Called Ove offers a powerful ode to the act of sharing.
