Based on the bestselling book by Fredrik Backman, A MAN CALLED OVE tells a heartfelt, poetic and humorous story about a grumpy old man who has given up on everyone including himself. But his life and negative approach to the world is put to the test when a new family moves in next door. The book has been a huge hit since it was released in Germany in August this year and is currently still to be found on the German bestseller list.
A MAN CALLED OVE is produced by Annica Bellander for Tre Vänner in co-operation with Film i Väst, SVT, Nordisk Film with support from The Swedish Film Institute and Nordsvensk Filmunderhållning.
Domestic release is currently set for December 2015.
