A Man Called Ove

Movie Review

There’s a special direction in contemporary European cinema that hasn’t yet been named. Let’s call them tragicomic stories about lonely grumpy old men who find meaning in life through casual encounters with strangers. “Uwe’s Second Life is just one of these. Uwe, in his seventh decade, is angry and discontented all the time, fighting with shopkeepers and neighbors, chasing dogs, arguing with everybody he can – he’s fed up with a world without his wife, the victim of a disease, and a rope on a hook instead of a chandelier in his house. But every time he puts a noose around his neck, something stops Uwe, helping him understand – it’s still too early to leave… A touching, sincere, sad film – about cultures and characters, about old people and children, about loneliness and family values… Yes, about everything.
