Movie Review – A Man Called OTTO
I am not a movie person buff but I am sharing my review of a movie, I watched recently. 🙂
This has changed in the last few years. In fact, I am neither a TV person nor a movie person. Recently, with my status changed to a retired fellow, I find a good amount of time at hand. So, I thought of finding out what can I do with this additional time. I spent it on my reading, increased my creative activity time and allocated almost 4 hrs a week for binge-watching. I am mostly a documentary watcher. History and science are my favourite genre.
This movie was shown as 3rd in India and was of almost 2 hours. I liked the synopsis, I made up my mind to watch it. We may find many Ottos in our society – old and alone. This film has shown the empathetic way to treat such lonely people. I have written a book about retired people and have shared what they expect in their sunset years. You may check this book here.
Film – A Man Called Otto
It is a 2022 American comedy-drama. It is available on NETFLIX.
Directed by Marc Forster from a screenplay by David Magee.
Starring -Tom Hanks in the title role
It seems like a touching and heartwarming story about a man who is struggling with the loss of his wife and finds a new purpose in life through his interactions with his neighbours. Tom Hanks’ performance as Otto is likely to be a highlight of the film, as he is known for his ability to portray complex characters with depth and nuance.
The supporting cast, including Mariana Treviño, Rachel Keller, and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, are also likely to deliver strong performances. Overall, it sounds like a movie that explores themes of grief, community, and redemption in a way that will resonate with audiences.
