New Scandinavian Cinema: 1001 GRAMS

1001 Grams

In this deadpan romantic comedy that recalls the absurdist-observational style of Jacques Tati, recently divorced scientist Marie travels to a scientific convention in Paris with Norway’s national kilo prototype and a broken heart, finding love amid the beauty of the City of Lights. “Despite the weighty title, this is an extremely light, delicate art film that rarely makes a false move. For those who know Bent Hamer’s work (O HORTON, KITCHEN STORIES, EGGS), this Norwegian-Parisian love story between two scientists will come as another pleasant installment in his warm stories about human beings and their need for each other.”—The Hollywood Reporter. (88 min.)

1001 GRAMS screens Saturday, October 24 at 6:30pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is showing as part of our New Scandinavian Cinema series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
