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.
