Description

FOCUS: HUMOR-IN THE JOCULAR VEIN Life has been one extraordinary, accidental adventure after another for explosives buff Allan Karlsson, and he sees no reason why the fun should stop at age 100. He slips out of the retirement home and boards a bus, inadvertently saddled with an unpleasant stranger’s luggage. Allan makes friends easily, especially around booze, but his impromptu jaunt is somewhat complicated by the suitcase’s contents: 50 million kronor in cash. Pursued by both a lackadaisical policeman investigating his disappearance and a pack of dim-bulb thugs in the employ of a profanity-spewing English gangster, the droll centenarian hits the road with an expanding circle of quirky acquaintances. The top-grossing film in Sweden last year, Felix Herngen’s delightful romp (adapted from Jonas Jonasson’s international bestseller) peppers Allan’s globe-hopping life story-highlighted by history-altering encounters with Franco, Truman, Stalin, and Reagan-with richly absurd flashbacks. The whimsical and witty score is by Matti Bye, whose acclaimed ensemble is a perennial favorite at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

Director Felix Herngren will attend the screenings.
