The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (15)

Director Felix Herngren. Swedish Drama/Crime/Comedy

The cheerful, charming, story of sprightly Allan who disappears from the old people’s home on his 100th birthday and soon has the police and a gang of Nazis on his tail. Through Allan’s picaresque journey we learn the story of his life and his impact on world events. The great pleasure he gets from blowing things up leads via mental hospital, the Spanish Civil War, the Manhattan Project, and the Gulag, to ridiculous encounters with Franco, Stalin, Reagan, and finally to a career as a double agent. A wonderfully entertaining shaggy dog story that neatly balances dark humour and playful storytelling.

Starring Robert Gustafsson, Iwar Wiklander, David Wiberg

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A little long, and true adaptation of the Book. Very amusing with several laugh out loud moments.

One of the most unusual films we have shown, but generally well liked.

Hugely enjoyed
