Critic Reviews for Weightless
Despite the emotional terra firma Nivola and other cast members try to provide, this drama about a taciturn loner forced into single-parenthood drifts into the ozone.
There's a sense of beauty and contemplation in Albertin's work, and though it seems like danger hangs in the air, there's an odd lack of tension or suspense, and the film's pace requires incredible patience.
Though hardly a failure, the serious-minded film is less affecting than it might've been, relying sometimes on hints that are needlessly ambiguous and on symbols that don't quite click.
Here, deeply damaged people are prone to exasperating decisions. Yet these characters are so strikingly realized that you can't help but care for them.
The nicest thing that can be said about this demure little Canadian trifle is that it's a film that finally gives the gifted, self-assured and sadly underrated Alessandro Nivola a leading role.
