The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (2013)

Sweden, France, Germany 112m, Colour
Director: Felix Herngren; Cast: Robert Gustafsson, Iwar Wiklander, David Wiberg, Mia Skäringer, Jens Hultén, Bianca Cruzeiro, Alan Ford

Rather than waste his breath on a hundred birthday candles, Allan Karlsson climbs out his nursing home window and hops on a bus in search of adventure. Limited only by the amount of loose change in his pocket, he unwittingly becomes the target of a local gang when he walks off with a suitcase of their money. Moving back and forth through time, we learn about his fascination with explosions and a his highly improbably and dark comedic life that is filled with Forrest Gump-like interactions. An entertaining and unpredictable comedy, The Hundred-Year-Old Man is an absurdly funny movie (Klaus Ming July 2017).
