Did You Know?

Trivia

The shot in Bali is done in Thailand. Although it shows the cars using Bali's license plate, in the closing credit where they list each crew team for each location like "Sweden team" and "Croatia team", there isn't "Bali team", but instead "Thailand team". See more »

Goofs

In Allan's voiceover, while telling about the Russian doll Allan's father brought him once to his birthday he is calling it "Babushka". The Russian name of these dolls is "Matrjoshka", but in Scandinavia they are often called "Babushka" (Russian for Grandmother). (In the English subtitled version, in which the voice overs are dubbed into spoken English by a different actor, this is corrected to "matrjoshka.") See more »

Quotes

Allan Karlsson: If you want to kill me, you'd better hurry, because I'm 100 years old.

A horrible rendering of a marvelous book
14 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

After reading the book I was in awe with a capital A.

It was an awesome reading and a wonderful experience. But after seeing the film it felt like someone had just shot me in the balls. It was like they took a page here and there and altered even that. Like a psycho rabbit on crack jumping here and there so fast that you can't keep up with. It seemed that Allan was popping up all over without properly explaining why he went there and what lead to it. Like going through a book from cover to cover by only reading the chapter titles. CONFUSING!!!

Read the book. Don't bother with the film.
