I see as many films as possible to share my thoughts everyone. We all love movies, but sometimes we would like to know a few opinions first.

In this near perfect story of an unlikely 100-year-old man, the audience follows Allan Karlsson (portrayed wonderfully by Robert Gustafsson) as he leaves his old age home to literally go anywhere. Stumbling across a man at a bus stop with a suspicious suitcase, he takes it along with him. Befriending another elderly man along the way, we get to see their friendship blossom as well as them meeting new friends.

This film has some bizarre and crazy attempts at comedy, and for me it was able to hit the nail on the head every single time. I had a blast watching this film. My two complaints would solely be the fact that we never know the illness he is suffering from, but I think that was purposefully done; However, the one valid complaint is that it distractingly changes between languages rapidly throughout the entire film, which could be tiresome for some viewers. Overall, I think this is a damn fine picture that does not have enough attention. I highly recommend it, especially filmgoers who love out of the box ideas. This is one of the most unique films of 2015.
