1001 Grams

A multi-character holiday film, Home For Christmas was the last we saw from Norwegian director Bent Hamer. His latest, which he has also written, sounds like a return to his sharply observed character studies a la 2007’s O’Horton.

Gist: When Norwegian scientist Marie attends a seminar in Paris on the actual weight of a kilo, it is her own measurement of disappointment, grief and, not least, love, that ends up on the scale.

Release Date: Affixed with a December 24th release in France, Hamer’s 2007 film, O’Horton, played in Un Certain Regard, and we’re thinking his latest has a possibility of playing there again.
