Yesterday was the gala premiere of the Swedish-American “A Man Called Otto” at cinema Rigoletto in Stockholm. Filmtopp was of course on site with its coverage.
A Man Called Otto is based on Fredrik Backman ‘s best-selling novel A Man Called Ov e, which gave us one of the biggest Swedish cinema hits ever in the film starring Rolf Lassgård . Sony Pictures is responsible for the international distribution, which means that the film will open in the biggest cinemas around the world. But also this time, SF Studios has been highly involved in the production, as well as Hank’s wife Rita Wilson , who also wrote her own song that we get to hear in the film.
Star-studded at the gala premiere of A Man Called Otto
After the red carpet, the expectant crowd got to see Tom Hanks and company talk about the making of A Man Called Otto on stage, followed by an exclusive preview of the film. Judging by the audience’s reactions during the film, they seemed very pleased with the film which had them filling the hall with laughter. Once the film was over, quite a few remained for a long time, taken from the more poignant sequences of the story.
