Michel Houellebecq is one of France’s most controversial authors, in large part due to his frequent antagonizing of the Islamic religion. At one point in 2011, he failed to make several scheduled appearances, leading to speculation that he had been abducted. This comedy imagines that he was indeed kidnapped by a hapless collection of criminals. Houellebecq plays himself during this metafictional ordeal, getting to know his kidnappers and making dry jokes.

This unforgettable comedy-adventure centers on the most unlikely of protagonists: 100-year-old Allan Karlsson (Robert Gustafsson), who flees his nursing home and finds himself rather obliviously on the run from some vicous mobsters. This is not the first time he’s been caught in the middle of some big action, however—frequent flashbacks to his earlier life show him caught up in major world events and getting into comic hijinks with historical figures ranging from Albert Einstein to Josef Stalin. It’s a lot like Forrest Gump, but with deadpan humor and distinctly European flavor.
