Love story with a twist, once mannerism takes over
30 November 2016 | by WordsmithSee all my reviews

Fyrir framan annað fólk, or: In Front Of Others

Charming to see a shy introvert (I might have given him the label autistic even) guy winning over a beautiful girl. Meet Hubert and Hanna: lovely to watch them interact as a couple. Of course, as in most relationships, the thing you're attracted to most in the beginning becomes annoying over time. Hubert finds out he's great at mimicking others and over time this becomes his way to express things he could not express otherwise. Hanna slowly gets annoyed with his mannerism and indeed the mimicking takes Hubert over, to the point where he's not in control anymore.

With the development of Hubert's mannerism the movie develops slowly and introduces us to Hanna's family and Hubert's colourful friends. None of them see or understand Hubert's flaw though and Hanna finds it hard to explain it to others. One thing I didn't understand was where Hubert's family was in all this? This movie was quite a laugh, with an underlying seriousness. It gave some insight into how a disorder can be a burden, though it can best be overcome by acceptance. In it's down-to-earth approach it felt as a really entertaining and fresh take on the romantic comedy genre.
