This is an initially touching film about a man who feels his life is over. His wife has died and he wishes to join her. Whenever he tries to meet his end, he gets interrupted either by his desire to make sure things in his neighborhood are being done properly and rules are followed, or by someone needing him to help them. Despite himself, he turns out to be a man that people are glad is around and they insist on making a friend of him. He helps families with small children, ostracized teenagers, and even elderly Volvo drivers. Ove’s journey is always compelling. This Swedish hit has a remarkably good story to tell about finding tolerance in surprising places and it also portrays a good balance of sentimentality against a harsh reality.
Love this movie. It did my heart good. Over is a sympathetic character and you can’t help but love his cantankerousness.
So emotional. I started with reading its book that encourage me to watch the film.
Perfect movie for when the hustle bustle of the world makes us forget to keep in touch with our emotions. This is a homing beacon for those feelings.
