  • Screening Time:
  • Year:
  • 2018

  • The Grump wants to die because all the work is done; the meaning of life is gone. But just as his own coffin is being finished, a new life appears to the Grump. His grandchild Sofia, 17, is in trouble and needs the stubbornness and wisdom of her grandfather and the warmth of the fireplace. The Grump gets a new meaning to his life – and a major secret. A stubborn old man and a young city girl get together and two halves grow up to be more than one whole human being. Happier times, Grump is an amusing and heartfelt movie about a serious topic. 

    Director’s Statement: Life surprises our main characters and forces them to look at themselves a little closer. We can’t always choose all the people with whom we go on this journey of life, and sometimes we just have to accept ourselves and them, even with all the mistakes. As long as there is love, everything is possible.
