Britt-Marie was Here (Britt-Marie var här) is a character study based on a novel by Fredrik Backman. Like all Backman’s characters, Britt-Marie is unique, a bit odd, and has a big growth arc during the time we get to know her.
Anxious People (Folk med ångest) from Sweden is a comedy, a mystery, and a heartfelt drama with themes of family, parenthood, and forgiveness. Its six episodes take less than 3 hours to play out, so it’s a perfect evening binge. It’s a Netflix series.
A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) is a heartwarming story from Sweden. Adapted from the best selling novel by Fredrik Backman by director Hannes Holm, the tale is a worthy rendering of the novel. Rolf Lassgård is wonderful as Ove.
