The latest film from Bent Hamer, the director of the acclaimed Kitchen stories.
Norwegian scientist Marie attends a Parisian seminar on the weight of a kilo (yes it is subject to evaluation!) As tragic events occur, her own measurement of life’s weight becomes a parallel story.
1001.Grams is a subtle, beautifully shot, slow paced drama with clever parody instants, gently mixed into the story adding riveting character developments. It may not play with the same appeal than Hamer best known work but it patiently explores the depth through the weight of life in an original and kindhearted way. The man, woman relationship contrary to most features is not tackled with your usual antagonism thus being surprisingly refreshing.
