A Man of No Importance is a 1994 comedy drama film directed by Suri Krishnamma and starring Albert Finney.


Alfred Byrne is a closeted homosexual bus conductor in 1963 Dublin. His sister tries to find him a suitable woman, but his real passion is putting on amateur theatre productions of Oscar Wilde plays. The film deals with his struggle, temptation, and friendships, and how they are affected by his homosexuality.[1]
