A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)

Dir: Hannes Holm |  2016 | Sweden, Norway |  116 mins | Cert: 15A

Based on a novel and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Oscars, this Swedish comedy-drama tells the story of Ove - a widower struggling to come to terms with the death of his wife. However, everything changes as he encounters the young family who move in next door. Rolf Lassgård excels as Ove in this true crowd-pleaser. 

‘A strong contender for feel-good film of the year.’ Empire Magazine

A screening of the short film Second to None will precede A Man Called Ove. Winner of the 2016 International Federation of Film Societies Don Quijote prize at last year’s Galway Film Fleadh and written and directed by IFTA nominee Vincent Gallagher, Second to None is a richly detailed stop-motion animation about the world’s second oldest man.

Frederick Butterfield has always been runner up to his twin brother Herman. When Herman, the older by a mere minute, becomes the world’s oldest man, Frederick finally sees an opportunity to be first place.
