"How many lives do we live? How many times do we die? They say we all lose 21 grams... at the exact moment of our death. Everyone. And how much fits into 21 grams? How much is lost? When do we lose 21 grams? How much goes with them? How much is gained? How much is gained? Twenty-one grams. The weight of a stack of five nickels. The weight of a hummingbird. A chocolate bar. How much did 21 grams weigh?"
21 Grams (2003) - Alejandro G. Iñárritu
Pitchfork: After watching 21 Grams, I remember thinking it was almost too depressing.
Lykke Li: "Yeah, but I'm like, 'Ah! Finally something that can reflect my mood!' For me it's like taking a bath. That's the thing-- I'm really depressing. Some people watch comedy to relax. I watch 21 Grams. I can recognize sadness and tragedy really easily because it's been with me forever."
