Film Website



Hubert is shy, introverted and has difficulty communicating with other people. He is, however, a brilliant imitator. When he meets Hanna and falls in love, he makes her laugh with his imitations of the Icelandic president and Hubert’s friend Fridrik. The two become a couple. But constantly imitating others takes more and more control of Hubert and becomes a kind of stand-up mania liable to break out in all kinds of situations. It gets on Hanna’s nerves and she distances herself from Hubert – so he has to find other ways of pleasing her and winning her heart, once and for all. In Front of Others is a wonderfully winning romantic comedy: warm, witty and intelligent.


Óskar Jónasson (*1963) became known in Germany with his thriller Reykjavík - Rotterdam, which was the Icelandic Oscar® entry in 2009.
