Great as history telling, flawed as a movie
10 February 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is the dramatization of the downfall of Atlantis, told as a half documentary, half dramatized movie. This being a severe natural disaster of an earthquake and volcano eruption followed by pyro clastic scorching winds after an eruption on the Greek island of Thera, by Plato called Atlantis.. Though I'm not too found of the use of color filters, theatrical play behavior and blue screen CGI and pompous music, I found this interesting.

Asa driving force in the story we both have a love story between two youngsters, Pinaruti and Yishharu, having their marriage at the outbreak. Yishharu feels something's wrong in beforehand, whilst most don't react to the signs of nature. Then there's a narrative voice, which many probably will find irritating. However, this helps out giving the historical facts, of which there are many given. So the film is basically a catastrophe movie, made as we used to, with an addition of the narrative voice.

CGI is great to tell a story, however, it's not the best in this film. It's sometimes a bit blurry and an cheap looking. But lots of it it also great, like the pyro clastic storm. Still this doesn't ruin the story telling here. I found the film intriguing, since I wanted to know more about the legend of Atlantis. I think this story fulfilled that mission.

We're by the narrator told things about the Menoan society, which was very advanced for it's time, with indoor toilets, and water flushed underground piping, and strong female rights. This is all ruined by an earthquake, which disturbed the magma and makes it possible for a volcano eruption.

I wonder he they have found out that there was spilt 5 million tons of magma, turning to pumice stone, and all the dangerous ash, filled with silicon, turning to liquid segment in the lungs of the habitants, still not leaving the island of Thera. Large consequences also for the island of Crete due to tsunamis.
