A MAN CALLED OVE
Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Filip Berg
Director: Hannes Holm
Running Time: 116 mins + Post-Screening Dialogue
Language: Swedish & Persian with English Subtitles
Ove is a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbour from hell.” However, behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heart-warming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.
After the screening, there will be a post-screening discussion that explores the lessons about happiness the elderly can teach us.
This screening will be preceded by a local short film: Pigeonhole by Lim Mei Fong.
