Sweden’s official submission for Academy Award consideration, this crowd-pleasing dramatic comedy is based on the bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman and stars Rolf Lassgård as the unforgettable curmudgeon of the title. Despite being removed as chairman of his condo association, sixtyish Ove persists on making his neighborhood rounds, as well as roundly criticizing anyone who doesn’t follow the rules. Popularly known as the “neighbor from hell,” he privately mourns his deceased wife and makes a few hapless attempts to join her. While flashbacks gradually reveal how Ove became the way he is, a young family moves in next door and flattens his mailbox, an unpromising start to what eventually becomes the redemptive defrosting of Ove. Rated PG-13. In Swedish with English subtitles. Writer/Director: Hannes Holm. (Sweden 2016) 116 min.
