Plot summary

59-year-old Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the townhouse neighborhood's sullen prefect. He is recently widowed and suicidal from the impact. One day, Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her family move into the house across the street. When they later knock down Ove's mailbox with their car, this becomes the prelude to an unexpected friendship and a turnaround in the world-weary man's life.

Critical reviews

The film received generally favorable reviews, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 92% and a Metacritic score of 69. Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and Rogerebert.com gave positive reviews. Reviewers have noted that while elements and formulas are familiar from films such as St. Vincent and Gran Torino, A Man Called Ove is well made and capable of bringing real tears to the audience's eyes.
