Realistic Tsunami Stars in Norwegian Disaster Movie

"The Wave," which imagines a tsunami devastating a small town that really is vulnerable to such a disaster, opened March 4 in the United States.

Movie directors still make horror and disaster movies because the viewing audience supports them. So a Norwegian disaster flick is now in some U.S. theaters, with "The Wave" having opened March 4 in the United States. It imagines a tsunami devastating a small town named Geiranger located at the head of the Geiranger fjord, a town that really is vulnerable to such a disaster.

The New York Times movie critic Manohla Dargis called the fjord the real star of the movie and credited the filmmakers for turning "The Wave" into a nail-biting thriller.

The town is threatened because a nearby mountain named Åkerneset is considered unstable, presenting a danger of a rock slide that would trigger a tsunami.
