1001 Grams ★★★½

This comic drama pokes gentle fun at the lengths countries go to to protect their sacred platinum/iridium exemplars of the kilogram. This film specifically is about how the Norwegian ingot compares with the original kilogram which is stored in Paris. The film tells the story of a young woman thrust into the position of representing her country at the annual kilogram convention when her father is unable to serve, and how she falls for a Parisian professor. Director Bent Hamer has a deliciously ironic style, smart and funny.
