Grandpa and Me and a Helicopter to Heaven
Sweden
The relationship between a remarkably perceptive young boy and his wise, bedridden grandfather overflows with humor, warmth and love. They share jokes, talk love, sex and politics, and enjoy each other’s company as only best friends can. As the old man senses that he has reached the end of his days, he takes his grandson into the forest in search of a special mushroom. With a light touch and an extraordinary sense for the fleeting moments in life, the film offers a moving reflection on being young and old; living and dying; and the legacy we leave behind. Directed by Johan Palmgren and Asa Blanck.
