A Man Called Ove

Lists: None yet

Brief Synopsis: "59 year-old Ove is the block’s grumpy man. Several years ago he was deposed as president of the condominium association, but he could not give a damn about being deposed and therefore keeps looking over the neighborhood with an iron fist. When pregnant Parvaneh and her family move into the terraced house opposite Ove and accidentally back into Ove’s mailbox it sets off the beginning of an unexpected change in his life."

Bryan Lienesch67 - When we meet parvaneh, a character so strong she eclipses the lot of weaker souls, you just sort of wish the movie had focused on her to begin with.
