The film THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED is about Allan Karlsson. After a long and eventful life, Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and that the days are getting tedious. When the celebration of his 100th birthday approaches, which Allan isn't interested in at all, he decides to escape his boring everyday life.

He climbs out of a window and a series of events embarks him on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving a gang of criminals, murderers, a suitcase stuffed with cash, an elephant and an incompetent policeman. It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but to Allan it is just ordinary life.

A Swedish family travels to the French Alps to enjoy a few days of skiing and spend some precious time with each other. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche turns everything upside down. With diners fleeing in all directions, mother Ebba calls for her husband Tomas as she tries to protect their children. Tomas, meanwhile, is running for his life... Reality returns to embarrassed laughter, the anticipated disaster having failed to occur, and yet the family's world has been shaken to its core. Tomas' unexpected action leads them to evaluate their roles and assumptions, a question mark hanging over their father in particular. With the end of the holiday approaching, Tomas and Ebba's marriage hangs in the bal- ance as Tomas struggles desperately to reclaim his role as family patriarch. FORCE MAJEURE is an observational comedy about the role of the male in modern family life.

Andrew Neiman is an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher, an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man's life. Andrew's passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability - and his sanity.
