101-Year-Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared, The
Director: Felix Herngren & Måns Herngren
Year Released: 2016
Centenarian - and former spy - Allan (Robert Gustafsson, with plenty of make-up) goes in search of a recipe for a (delicious) drink called "Folksoda" that was being developed in Soviet Russia under Brezhnev ... and it just so happens the CIA wants the information as well. I guess the bumbling/stumbling nature of these idiotic "characters" is supposed to be entertaining, but I just don't find mocking geriatrics to be ideal material for any movie (it turns out the "adventure" was all for naught: the formula was tattooed on Allan's behind the whole time ... ha ha ha senility). The appeal of this could just be a cultural thing I don't understand, not unlike the sometimes screwy instructions from a certain build-your-own-furniture brand (I swear they intentionally don't package enough bolts and screws).
