#16/2017 A Man Called Ove


Ove is a quintessential old grumpy neighbor who lives alone in the suburbs. His life changes when a young immigrant couple with children moves into a house next to him. This kind of relation could be seen in "Gran Torino" so I expected a similar story here. And to a certain degree it is. Ove's staunch principles are put to test as new reality invades his well structured world. There is some warmth here as the man gradually opens up, and more insights into how his life prior to current events had gone. They build a more complex picture of the man and make it hard not to feel for him. It's a solid story that does a good job of reminding not to judge on appearance.
