The film The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared, based on Jonas Jonasson’s very successful novel, was a very pleasant surprise when I caught it by chance.

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared - DVD coverThink Forrest Gump crossed with Swedish road movie, with an adding helping of gangsters, an elephant and famous 20th century dictators.

It’s about the comic misadventures of a Swedish man, who turns one hundred during the movie and mixes current comic capers involving a mystery suitcase, bungling gangsters and flawed relationships, with recollections of his past life and its own misadventures. The basic structure of the plot is not very original, but the specific whimsical misadventures often are – and are always recounted with sufficient warmth and humour to make even familiar jokes enjoyable.
