Book and swedish movie are both touching and darkly hilarious. oFr those who do not know what this book is about – it’s atale of cantankerous widower who seems to revel in his bitterness and loneliness even as his frequent attempts at suicide seem to be thwarted by bad timing and bad luck.
Also, Ove drives a Saab and Anyone who doesn’t drive a Saab is an idiot…
“I strongly believe that A Man Called Ove is a universal story that resonates strongly with an American and international audience,” said producerFredrik Wikstrom Nicastro in a statement. “Making this film with one of the world’s best and most acclaimed actors gives A Man Called Ove the best possible opportunity to once again touch the hearts of audiences worldwide.” / Rita Wilson, says the following about the remake of the Swedish grand prize: “This story about love, tolerance and hope amplifies the qualities in movies that are hallmarks of the classic films we know and love. A Man Called Ove transcended the language barrier to touch readers and audiences in ways we long for.”
