“Meet Ove. At 59, Ove is a grumble Gus of the first degree. Rules are made to be followed, signs are meant to be obeyed, and don’t even get him started about computers and mobile phones. He drives a Saab and anyone who doesn’t drive a Saab is an idiot, he would never ever buy a Volvo.

In truth, Ove has been this way his whole life, but he’s gotten worse in the last four years since his wife, Sonia, died, taking with her all the color in a world Ove sees as black-and-white. Ove has decided life without Sonia is not worth living and plans to join her in the next world. But a young couple and their two children (a third is on the way) move in next door, his oldest friend and most feared enemy is about to be forcibly removed to a nursing home, and a street-scarred cat insinuates itself into his life. Suddenly, Ove’s suicide plans get delayed as he helps solve neighborly crises large and small.”


Starring: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Filip Berg, Ida Engvoll

A comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul.

”A Man called Ove” won Best Actor in a leading role and Best Make-up in the 2016 Sweden’s Guldbagge Awards (Swedish Oscars) and nominated for Best Film, Best photo and Visual effects.
