A quirky meditation on the weight of the soul. Depicts a reality bathed in such absurdity that it feels like fantasy.... The film is caught between moments of great storytelling and a distended metaphor.
Gorgeous cinematography balances impeccable acting and directing for a romantic trifle that delights with design more than content.
"1001 Grams" achieves a charming equipoise of levity and gravity, of formal rigor and soulful sentiment.
Hamer's style is what might happen if Ulrich Seidl liked people, with immaculate balance in each shot, but the emotions in focus, as well.
This portrait of an introverted soul brought out of her shell is not without its charms.
Despite the weighty title, this is an extremely light, delicate art film that rarely makes a false move.
The pleasures of the film are entirely visual.
...takes its central metaphor very seriously.
Frame after frame in 1001 Grams has such a strikingly composed look.
For some, this movie will be too slow and too quiet. But for those who can tolerate a story that unfolds slowly and a director who makes gentle fun of his characters, 1001 Grams will be rewarding.
[Hamer's] new film is both appealing and more than a little trite, finding pleasantly glib solutions to the terrors of mortality and loss.
A miniaturist dealing in microcosms that reveal the world...one of the most human films I've seen in recent years, full of insight, sadness and unexpected laughs.
