Marie is a scientist who works in the Mass Department of the Norwegian Metrology Service where her father Ernst is director. When Ernst surprisingly falls ill, Marie is asked to go to Paris to recalibrate the National Norwegian kilo and take part in an international seminar where colleagues from around the world discuss new ways of defining the actual weight of a kilo. Through her scientific journey, it is actually her own measurement of disappointment, grief and love that ends up on the scale. In Paris she meets Pi, a former scientist at the esteemed Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, and through him the possibility of love. Finally Marie is forced to come to terms with how much a human life truly weighs and which measurements she intends to live by.

The production errors bothered me. It was supposed to be close captioned -- it wasn't. There were English subtitles but only to translate the dialogue. When the characters spoke English, the captioning disappeared. Also, the sound was really bad. The background music was sometimes louder that the dialogue. I had the volume cranked up to the max just to hear the words. Aside from that, the scenes were carefully crafted and had an artsy sheen to them. Usually though it was to show an empty room. This is a slow movie and you have to wait for the good parts. But they are there. I would say it's worth watching.

it's all about the weight - the official weight, the weight of losses, the weight love.

another good film by Bent Hamer
