Congratulations to The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared for today’s Oscar® nomination for Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling
The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Felix Herngren is based on an international bestseller of the same name, which has sold more than six million copies worldwide.
Described as “a start-to-finish rocket-speed riot ” by Colin Covert of the MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE and “a quirky comic odyssey with a winningly off-kilter sense of humor” by Charles Bramesco of THE DISSOLVE, THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED is a sheer delight—an irresistible, madcap adventure about an ordinary man who can’t help but to stumble into one extraordinary circumstance after another!
“It is always difficult to adapt a book to film, but I could not resist THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED when I got the chance,” says writer/director Felix Herngren. “It is a delightfully twisted story with rich characters, and situational comedy at its best. I know the expectations are high for the film, and this is of course tough, but I’d rather shoot a good story with high expectations, than an unloved story without expectations.”
Like an unruly Nordic cousin of Forrest Gump, THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED offers Allan’s present-day exploits alongside flashbacks of his youthful adventures, with his passion for explosives attracting the attention of everyone from Joseph Stalin to Robert Oppenheimer to Ronald Reagan. Allan’s adventures of yesterday and today weave together into a delicious treat for anyone and everyone who’s ever felt young at heart.
