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. With Mariana Treviño, Rachel Keller, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Truman Hanks and Mike Birbiglia.
"If you were to start [this remake and the original] at the exact same moment, I promise it wouldn't make any difference which one you looked at. But you know why? Because all the scenes were working in the first movie, too." (FilmWeek)
"All but the most dogged of sceptics will be charmed by the message of the redemptive power of small acts of kindness and plastic containers full of tamales." (Observer UK)
"It’s another memorable performance from the veteran actor, backed by a crackling good supporting cast." (Chicago Sun-Times)
"Director Marc Forster thankfully applies a fairly restrained, subtle approach. The result is a film to which you ultimately find yourself succumbing even though you never stop being aware that your heartstrings are being shamelessly pulled." (Hollywood Reporter)
