As you’ve probably guessed – unless you are one of the many millions that bought and enjoyed the best-selling novel of the same name by Jonas Jonasson - The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared is a comedy about… Okay. 

We will say this: The film is Sweden's most successful film to date and is widely regarded as one of the best book to screen adaptations in recent years. 

So the story, it goes something like: Allan Karlsson, on his 100th birthday, decides to break free from his life in a retirement home. Instead of waiting to die, he climbs out of his window and disappears – hence the comedy title.

But even Karlsson, despite already living the life of a thousand men,  didn’t foresee the extraordinary journey ahead of him. A suitcase stuffed with cash, some disagreeable criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator and an elephant all play meaningful cameos in his three-digit life. 

“I read the book some years ago. A friend of mine, who is one of the producers for the film - Henrik Jansson-Schweizer - recommended it to me. I was not so keen when I heard about the story; I thought ‘Oh my god, making a film about a 100 year old man, it doesn't seem so funny', but when I read it, it only took me a few pages before I actually laughed out loud. I really loved the humour in the story, the absurdness,” said director Felix Herngren to Movies.ie on his book-to-film adaptation. 

The film opens in the UK on 4 July.
