A Man Called Otto – Tom Hanks’ “cute” meeting with his new neighbors in the movie’s promotional clip
A Man Called Otto is a comedy-drama directed by Marc Forster (The Dreamer, The Kite Runner) and starring Tom Hanks in the title role. The story takes place in Pittsburgh and tells about a man who gave up being happy and kind to others because of mourning his wife who died of cancer. He would love to join his beloved in the afterlife. However, when he meets new neighbors, he undergoes a transformation. Fate shows him that he can be loved again.
This is the second film adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s best-selling novel A man named Ove. The first film was a Swedish production from 2015, directed by Hannes Holm. The title was nominated for an Oscar in two categories – for the best foreign language film and for the best make-up and haircuts.
A clip promoting the film has been released online, in which we see a scene where Hanks’s character meets new neighbors who will turn his life upside down. Check out the video below.
