The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared (2013)

Adventure, Comedy 1h 54m 2013

Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Jonas Jonasson, this is the wonderful and unlikely story of a 100-year-old man who decides it’s not too late to start over.

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home. A big celebration for his 100th birthday is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested. Instead, he climbs out of a window and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey - involving a gang of criminals, murderers, a suitcase stuffed with cash, an elephant and an incompetent policeman.

It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory. Not only has Allan witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, but he has actually played a key role in them, including the invention of the atomic bomb and sharing meals and more with everyone from U.S. presidents to Russian tyrants. For a hundred years, Allan Karlsson rattled the world, and now he’s on the loose again…
