Adolfo, a thirty-something security guard, is going through a bad patch. Not only has his lifetime girlfriend left him to be with another guy, but he suddenly becomes the target of a series of attacks led by Vázquez, a dangerous criminal who has escaped from jail. Adolfo also discovers that his father has a double identity. He is not a farmer engaged in meat production - as Adolfo has believed all his life - but a secret agent who locked Vázquez in jail 30 years ago. Adolfo will have to leave his comfort zone and work with his father in order to survive the revenge of Vazquez, while also trying to win back his girlfriend.

Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman's international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife's grave, Ove has given up on life. Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally flattens Ove's mailbox while moving in, earning his special brand of ire. Yet from this inauspicious beginning an unlikely friendship forms and we come to understand Ove's past happiness and heartbreaks. What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared. Nominated for two Academy Awards at the 2017 Oscars, including Best Foreign Language Film of the Year.

God exists, and He's a jerk. He lives in a high-rise apartment in Brussels and never gets out of His pajamas. He takes sadistic delight in dreaming up new "laws" to torment humanity and He's a petty tyrant to His wife and ten year-old daughter, Ea. Like her brother before her, Ea has had enough of her Father's abuse and when she spies the right opportunity, she hacks into His computer and leaks to the entire world-by text message-the only thing He has over them: their inevitable death date. Ea, after escaping and with her Father in pursuit, gathers apostles and writes her own New Testament to try to fix the mess her Father has made of humanity. Her six apostles -a one-armed woman, a sex maniac, a killer, a woman who has been left by her husband, an office worker, and a gender dysphoric child-learn to celebrate life and love, and provide us with Jaco Van Dormael's dark, witty and eccentric answer to the loaded question: what would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left to live?
