The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared tells the tale of Allan Karlsson, who loves his vodka. So much so that he escapes from his nursing home on the morning of his 100th birthday. From here he sets off on an adventure the devolves into a nationwide manhunt. The story is interspersed with “Forrest Gump” like flashbacks as we see what a unique character Allan Karlsson is. How his love of explosives gets him on the Manhattan project during WW-II and from there into the company of many world leaders and famous people like Einstein. No, not Albert but his dumb half-brother Herbert. It’s an imaginative story and laugh out-loud funny. It should make for a funny movie (or two); full of bizarre situations and unusual characters. Allan Karlsson may be 100-years-old, but he has a lively spirit, a rich background, and an easy going outlook on life, “whatever is meant to happen will happen.” He’s never worried or stressed.
