21 Grams
film — USA — 2003

It`s the weight that a person loses after the death. Probably it`s the weight of the human soul. Not that the film would tell that much about it. Basically it`s about a man who`s dying from a heart disease (caused by smoking!), a woman that has lost her family in a car accident and a man who has caused that car accident. Benitio del Torro and Sean Penn are the leading males while I can`t tell one american actress from another. The main importance is the timeline of the film that doesn`t go forward or backwards but is somewhat of a jigsaw puzzle so that until somewhere in the middle of the film you don`t really understand what`s happening. I still think that without that the film would lose much of its quality. I certainly expected more although it`s still a good film.
