THE 100 YEAR OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED (15) 2014 114 mins
Swedish adventure comedy based on Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling novel. Despite having reached his 100th birthday, Allan Karlsson (Robert Gustafsson) still has a sharp mind. Keen to avoid the party that his retirement home have organised for him, Allan climbs out of his bedroom window and begins an escapade featuring criminals and a stash of drug money. Allan, however, is not new to adventure – during his lifetime he was involved with many significant events which changed the course of history and became associated with world leaders and other notable figures along the way.
During this escapade, we discover Allan’s remarkable life story in flashback. It turns out this shambling old Swede was a psychiatric inmate, mine demolition expert, Spanish Civil War hero, rocket scientist and spy. At one point or another, he was a saviour to Franco, Truman and Stalin. Adapted from the highly successful novel the film is a mix of high comedy and serious themes.
This is a tale of someone refusing to be pigeon-holed. ‘If you want to kill me, you better hurry, because I’m 100 years old’.
