He might not be as recognized as someone like Aki Kaurismaki, but Norwegian filmmaker Bent Hamer has carved out his own similarly distinctive niche, thanks to offbeat comedies like "Kitchen Stories" and "O'Horten." Now he's back with "1001 Grams," which will make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the first trailer dropped today.

1001 Grams

He might not be as recognized as someone like Aki Kaurismaki, but Norwegian filmmaker Bent Hamer has carved out his own similarly distinctive niche, thanks to offbeat comedies like "Kitchen Stories" and "O'Horten." Now he's back with "1001 Grams," which will make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the first trailer dropped today.

Starring Ane Dahl Torp, Laurent Stocker, Stein Winge, Hildegun Riise, Per Christian Ellefsen, Peter Hudson, Dinara Droukarova, Christian Erickson, Didier Flamand and Magne Håvard Brekke, the movie's milieu is set in an absurdly specific area of science. Here's the official synopsis: "When Norwegian scientist Marie attends a seminar in Paris on the actual weight of a kilo, it is her own measurement of disappointment, grief and love that ends up on the scale." 

There's no U.S. distributor for this one yet. Watch the trailer below.
