Sweden’s biggest hit of 2016 is this endearing, crowd-pleasing, and wonderfully grouchy comedy about the quintessential grumpy old man (Rolf Lassgård) who finds his scathing view of the world put to the test when a new family moves in next door.

Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman’s international best-selling novel, Ove an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life. Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox while moving in. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.
