THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED is a subtitled Swedish comedy drama about a man who absconds from a nursing home on his 100th birthday.

Language

The film contains over forty uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'). There are also various uses of milder bad language, such as 'prick', 'faggot' and 'bastard'.

Violence

There is violence at several points in the film, but it is generally of a comic, almost slapstick, nature and contains very little in terms of impact detail or blood. However, one scene, set during the Spanish Civil War, contains some stronger violence. A friend of the main character is shot, with a bloody impact wound to the centre of his forehead and bloody spray from the back of his head. However, he is almost silhouetted against the sky on the top of a hill, so the bloody detail is not graphic. The man is also seen with bloody matter on the grass beneath him as his comrades attend his body. Other violence includes a brief flashback to the main character's father being executed by firing squad, without any bloody detail. Some blood spatters are shown during a montage of executions, but there is no detail of the violence.

There are some moderate sex references, with a woman saying a man has 'good fingers' and a gangster threatening 'You screw with me, I'll screw with you. Every f**king orifice, backwards, sideways, up your f**king arsehole...'
