This Oscar®-nominated Swedish smash hit is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman's international bestselling novel about a grumpy old man who learns important life lessons from his new Iranian neighbours.
Ove (Rolf Lassgard) is the quintessential angry old man next door, an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse (he stopped talking to his best friend 10 years earlier when he dared to buy a Volvo instead of a Saab). He has given up on life, but when pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her young family move next door, his solitary regime is shaken in ways he would never have imagined, and from inauspicious beginnings an unlikely friendship forms.
What emerges is a heartwarming, funny, and deeply moving tale of unreliable first impressions and a gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared.
