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.

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.
