Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Jonas Jonasson, the film is the unlikely story of a 100-year-old man who decides it's not too late to start over. For most people it would be the adventure of a lifetime, but Allan Karlsson's unexpected journey is not his first. For a century he's made the world uncertain, and now he is on the loose again. Directed by Felix Herngren, "The 100-Year-Old Man" is a "Forrest Gump"-like tale in which hapless protagonist Allan Karlsson (Swedish star comedian Robert Gustafsson) unwittingly plays a key role in some of the most important events of the past century.
