Otto is ready to end it all, but his plans are interrupted when a lively young family moves in next door, and he meets his match in quick-witted Marisol. She challenges him to see life differently, leading to an unlikely friendship that turns his world around. A heartwarming and funny story about love, loss, and life, A Man Called Otto shows that family can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places.

  • Crap Remake

    By Let me see here...
    Original movie was great, as was the book. This was a very poor adaptation. Poor writing, poor directing. You can tell the director thought many scenes would be really dramatic or funny. But they fell pathetically flat. Plus, what’s with changing the story to force wokeness in? Garbage. Make better use of your time and just watch A Man Called Ove.
  • OTTO For the win!!

    I’ve watched this movie 3 -times now. Such a fabulous heart-felt story with a good mix of comedy and drama. Tom Hanks is stellar as usual, but all the actors portraying supporting character complement Tom Hanks superbly.

    The book is very good. This is not very good.

    First let me say I enjoy the characters that Tom Hanks plays, so I’m a bit jaded. I did not read the book so I watched with no real knowledge of the story. The role of Otto unfolded as one might expect for this character, but the addition of a new neighbor could have gone a variety of ways. However the tenacious nature of her kindness wins out, and that was refreshing given Otto’s determination to leave this world. The power of love and kindness prevails throughout and the good feelings this movie leaves you with hits the mark for leaving the theater satisfied. While suicide should never be taken lightly, ever, Otto’s attempts were amusing enough to keep the movie in the light rather than the darkness that is so prevalent with thoughts of suicide. His grief is eventually replaced with purpose, and again keeps the movie in the light. The soundtrack was extremely important to conveying the scene’s meanings. I liked it so much, that I’m listening to it as I write this. I have read some of the comments about this movie, and while I may not agree with them, I respect their views and opinions. For me I was entertained, found some new music, was reminded it takes work to be a good neighbor, and lastly Tom Hanks and his lovely wife Rita delivered. Thank you!

    Please stop making movies
  • Amazing movie, Tom did it again

    Absolute great movie, good mix of humor and seriousness. Anyone whining about “woke agenda”, go practice falling down in traffic. How dare they make a movie with plot points relevant to the times… Anyone who solely focuses on that “woke” junk probably has bedded their sister at some point.
