About the film:

Marie likes everything to be measurable. But how is happiness measured? How do you know how much weight a life weighs? A film about the quirks of being human from Norway's extraordinary comedy master Bent Hamer.

Obsessed with all that is physically measurable, Marie (Ane Dahl Torp) is a scientist leading a ‘measured’ life in all matters personal and professional. She works with her equally fanatical father Ernst at Norway’s institute of weights and measures. Things begin to change when Ernst suffers a heart attack and Marie has to take his place at an international calibration conference in Paris, a journey that eventually becomes a poignant one of self-discovery. There, she meets the warm and philosophical Pi, whose offbeat musings challenge Marie to think about the weight and value she places on her own happiness. Master of the poetic comedy, writer-director Bent Hamer is on top form here as he uses a light touch to explore the grey area between science and feelings, human beings and our need for each other.
