It was a critical hit at last year’s Fantastic Fest and Toronto International Film Festival and now it’s picking up stellar reviews, with some critics describing it as the best disaster movie for a generation.
The plot of Norwegian film The Wave rattles along like so:
The experienced geologist Kristian Eikfjord has accepted a job offer out of town. He is getting ready to move from the city of Geiranger with his family, when he and his colleagues measure small geological changes in the underground. Kristian gets worried and his worst nightmare is about to come true, when the alarm goes off and the disaster is inevitable. With less than 10 minutes to react, it becomes a race against time in order to save as many as possible including his own family.
