The shot in Bali is really done in Bali, Indonesia. The tag number on the trucks and cars begin with DK and followed by numbers and two letters. The DK tag number is for vehicle in Bali although one may find vehicles with that tag number in the neighboring island, Lombok, which shares the same culture as Bali. But since Lombok has no zoo, while Bali has, so the elephant used in Bali scene must be from the Taman Safari Zoo in Bali and so the shots took place in Bali. See more »

Rarely is a film this engaging, entertaining and unpredictable, in any language! The story, present and past, of Allan Karlsson grabs you from the start. It reminded me of Peter Sellers performance in Being There. In fact, all the performances worked, from the care home workers, dim-witted bikers, bored detective and world leaders.
I had no idea what to expect, only that it was Sweden's third biggest film after the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the Girl that played with fire (also both excellent films, in very different ways).
I really should rate it a 10, as there is nothing to criticise about the film, except to say that it is clearly not The Godfather, nor intended to be. However, for what it is, it is brilliant.
If you like to be surprised and entertained, I cannot really think of anyone that wouldn't enjoy watching this. Find it. Watch it. Enjoy!
