A touching, comic, feelgood crowd-pleaser, Ove is a black comedy with a very warm heart.
Our hero is the eponymous Ove - the quintessential grumpy old man next door, (elegantly portrayed by Rolf Lassgard), and the story of how this sour, overly principled widower falls back in love with life, following the moving in of new, younger neighbours next door to him. Staying just the right side of sentimental, director Hannes Holm has adapted Fredrik Backman’s 2012 bestseller with aplomb - a gently persuasive blend of wit, wisdom and humour.
Catch it before Tom Hanks’ unnecessary US remake hits screens next year.
