quote from niagara film festival
Director: Felix Herngren
Cast: Robert Gustafsson, Iwar Wiklander, David Wiberg
Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Jonas Jonasson, an explosives savant climbs out of the window of his retirement home on his 100th birthday deciding it’s never too late to start over and go on an adventure. Along the way he picks up a suitcase full of cash (amongst other things and people), and we discover that his life has been connected to some of the biggest events of the 20th century.
Director Felix Herngren explained to EuroNews what drew him to the story: “It’s just a great story. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a bit absurd and quirky. And then, also, I think all people are kind of afraid to be old, and then we have this picture of, you know, sitting in the elderly home, nobody visiting you and you just staring into a wall. It’s kind of liberating to see a man who just climbs out of the window and has the biggest adventure ever waiting for him. So it’s something we can relate to.”
The Forrest-Gumpish meets Zelig tale has been a huge hit in Sweden and stars native son comedian Robert Gustafsson in the title role.
