A Man Called Otto Plot

The film’s protagonist will be Otto, an irritable, cranky, and savagely strict widower. His whole community holds him accountable for his values, which he judges regularly.

When this reclusive (and profoundly lonely) man who is still grieving the death of his wife looks to have completely lost his zest for life, longing for death, he forms an uncanny bond with his new neighbors.


Otto undergoes a gradual but steady transformation. However, when entrenched patterns persist, the path to transformation is seldom straightforward.

A Man Called Otto Cast

The cast of A Man Called Otto is as follows:

  • Tom Hanks will act as Otto
  • Mariana Treviño
  • Manuel Garcia-Rulfo
  • Rachel Keller

About A Man Called Otto

The project, which has been in development for some years, will be produced by Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman. SF Studios’ Fredrik Wikström Nicastro, who produced the Swedish adaption, will also act as producer.

The first version received widespread acclaim and was the highest-grossing foreign-language picture in the United States in 2016.

About A Man Called Otto

The international bestseller has sold over 7 million copies, and for 77 consecutive weeks in the 18 months following its English translation, the book stayed on the New York Times bestseller list.

We can only expect that the English adaptation lives up to the legacy of the novel’s precursor. If Tom Hanks can replicate the seriousness with which Rolf Lassgrd brought the character to life, we may be confident that “A Man Called Otto” will be another great novel adaptation.
