The Weight of Elephants

The setbacks, sorrows and rare joys of a lonely child misfit are charted with sensitivity but also a certain dramatic contrivance in the feature debut of New Zealand director Daniel Borgman.

- Lee Marshall, Screen Daily

Reflecting the writer-director's background, the contemplative drama combines a deeply felt connection to the sleepy suburban isolation of his native New Zealand with a psychological approach typical of much Danish cinema, where he has put down professional roots.

- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
