Agnès Jaoui co-writes and directs this romantic comedy of manners set in France's rustic Provence. Unpolished and ultra-pragmatic industrialist Jean-Jacques Castella (co-scripter Jean-Pierre Bacri) reluctantly attends Racine's tragedy "Berenice" in order to see his niece play a bit part. He is taken with the play's strangely familiar-looking leading lady Clara Devaux (Anne Alvaro). During the course of the show, Castella soon remembers that he once hired and then promptly fired the actress as an English language tutor. He immediately goes out and signs up for language lessons. Thinking that he is nothing but an ill-tempered philistine with bad taste, Clara rejects him until Castella charms her off her feet.
Three men, three women, opposites, possibilities, and tastes. Castella owns a industrial steel barrel plant in Rouen; Bruno is his flute-playing driver, Franck is his temporary bodyguard ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

So it is quite a surprise that I found this movie extremely entertaining and enjoyable. Director Felix Herngren brings to life an original and unique story about a 100-year old man who decides to go out, have an adventure, and mess with the world once again, along the way.With the appearance of charismatic actors, including protagonist Robert Gustafsson, the movie becomes amusing right away. We are taken from the past to the present life of this man constantly, admiring not only the witty, but brilliant and imaginative history lesson. The passing of time became even for distinctive and real thanks to the make-up done in Robert Gustafsson. It was impressive, to say the least, to see someone physically change through a movie in such a realistic way.More than a movie, The 100-year old man, is a lighthearted and ridiculous trip down world-history lane. While the film might not be for everyone since it is incredibly absurd and even foolish, it is worthwhile and unique in every aspect. From its charming actors to the amazing make-up, it has definitely gone above and beyond my expectations.

The dynamic between the characters seemed a little forced..and not very believable. It has it's moments that are moving and make you think (the part where DeVito meets his son) but the overacting and lack of chemistry between the characters made me not care as much.
