Out of an Old Man's Head

Time Out says

Recuperating from an injury in an old folk's home, widower Johan Björk (the comedian Hasse Alfredson) runs through the incidents of his life: from childhood japes in the countryside, through his first visit to a whore house, to the running-away to sea of his son Erik - all expressed in a curious dreamlike mix of animation and live action. The tone and content of Per Åhlin's often inventive animation styles (two-dimensional cut-outs, crayon drawings, photographic collages, realist line-drawings, etc) veers between sophisticated erotic surrealism, notably in the whore house episode, and the standard sentiments of a children's cartoon. Over-extended and uneven, but a genuine oddity none the less.
