SCA16 The Wave

18+ 105 MIN


Scandinavia’s first disaster movie, this breathtaking, action-packed film broke box office records and is based on the real-life event of the 1934 tsunami which hit Norway’s Tafiord.

Geologist and father of two Kristian (Kristoffer Joner), is about to move from his job at an early disaster warning centre to work at an oil company. However, he has a bad feeling about some odd readings from the mountain in his town of Geiranger. Unable to shake the feeling, Kristian delays leaving town and finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his family when the mountain collapses and two million cubic metres of rock triggers a wave of more than 85 metres high, leaving a trail of destruction.

Director Roar Uthaug sweeps the seaside village away with terrifying realism through soaring helicopter shots that roam the spectacular landscape in all its majesty before narrowing in on Kristian and his family’s desperate escape from the terror. Top Norwegian stars Kristoffer Joner as Kristian and the striking Ane Dahl Torp as his wife, Idun, display great emotional depth, rounding out this unmissable cinematic experience.
