Dynamite expert Allan Karlsson’s life, and the unlikely events following his escape from the old folk’s home on his 100th birthday.
Very dry, quirky black humour that is marvellously entertaining. Watching a 100 year old man might seem boring, but the movie definitely is not! The lead actor (Robert Gustafsson), who is 50 years old in reality, does a great job of playing the 100-year-old man, Allan Karlsson – and the makeup is brilliant (it’s already started winning awards). The story ranges through 100 years of world history as Allan gets involved in various surprising ways. Definitely worth a visit to the cinema.
