synopsis :

59-year-old Ove is a grumpy old man. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days looking over the block association rules that only he cares about. Ove has given up on life. When pregnant Parvaneh and her family move in next door and she accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox an unexpected 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.

Ove (59 thn) adalah seorang pensiunan pemarah dengan nilai dan prinsip yang kaku. Sehari-hari ia mengawasi peraturan dan tata tertib RT-nya meskipun tidak ada warga setempat yang peduli dengan aturan itu. Ove yang merasa terasing ingin bunuh diri, tapi rencananya terganggu oleh tetangga baru; Parvaneh yang hamil beserta keluarganya. Sebuah persahabatan tak terduga berkembang antara mereka, dan kita mulai paham arti bahagia dan duka bagi Ove. Film ini bercerita bagaimana kesan pertama bisa mengecoh dan bagaimana hidup bisa lebih manis kalau dijalankan bersama.

A touching comic crowdpleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end.
