Ove is a retiree struggling to come to terms with the death of his wife - a struggle that he angrily takes out on his neighbours by strictly enforcing the estate rules.

Ove’s world is unexpectedly turned upside down when a young family move in next door. Despite his initial resistance, Ove slowly forms a bond with his new neighbours and discovers a whole new side of life...

Based on a novel and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Oscars, this Swedish hit is a bittersweet but charming tale of one man rediscovering himself after a devastating tragedy. Darkly comic but sensitively told, this is a true crowd-pleaser held together by a remarkable lead performance.
