Synopsis

After a long and colorful life Allan Karlsson finds himself stuck in a nursing home. Determined to escape on his 100th birthday, he leaps out of a window onto the nearest bus, kicking off an unexpected journey involving a suitcase stuffed with cash, wicked criminals, and an elephant named Sonya.

Our take

This adaptation of the best-selling Swedish book takes its quirky premise to chaotic, hilarious extremes. Following a centenarian on the run from his nursing home, this Forrest Gump-like odyssey through the annals of the 20th-century features appearances from Stalin, Reagan… and Einstein’s brother!
