Such a good well paced film! I wasn't expecting it to pull me in the way it did.
Unusual film with many unusual events with a funny twist. Predictably, his life was not going to end too fast. Clever use of flashbacks.
If you've read the (superb) book you will realise that this is not far off perfect.
Great movie - starts slow but it's wonderful and you grow to love it and Ove!
That is s great family movie.
A familiar arc told sincerely: dark, Nordic humor suffuses a moving melodrama about the old grouch with a heart of gold. The pacing is abrupt in places, and you might feel like the film rushed toward its ending.
Very touching story.
Movies don't get much better than this one.
Hanging out at the FSU Film School, we learned that movies have a "color palette", a chosen color scheme that permeates the entire film. In this film, that color is Peacock Blue, my wife's favorite color. It was actually entertaining to see that color pop up again and again.
Nostalgically pleasing and heartfelt sentimental, this nominee for Best Foreign Language Academy Award is an adaptation of Swedish best seller by Fredrik Backman about the eponymous curmudgeon honouring his beloved late wife's benevolentness as a caretaker manager of his neighbourhood while reminiscing their dewy-eyed past between his suicide attempts.
The redemption of the grumpy old man is not a particularly new premise. It feels fresh here because of its very Swedish setting. While the scenes in the present work, it is the flashbacks that often slow down the film and almost explain too much. Once you know why he turned out the way he did things get a little too predictable. There are genuinely sweet moments, especially concerning the cat, but some are also very cheesy. The film could actually have stayed a little meaner for much longer, it would have been better for it.
