In this adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestseller, Rolf Lassgård stars in the lead role of Ove, a cranky middle-aged man whose mission in life appears to be keeping watch over his neighbours like a hawk, ready to castigate anyone for the slightest thing he disapproves of. However, an unlikely friendship begins to develop when the pregnant Parvaneh and her family move into the neighbourhood.
A Man Called Ove is a heart-warming comedy drama on love, friendship and forgiveness, with a standout performance from Rolf Lassgård.
