First thought about this... Name of this movie is the "Wave", which sounds like a generic boring name, and i had very little. to no actually special interest to see it, but since i heard it is Oscar nominated and is one of few Norwegian films coming out, my interest was peeked a little, so me a and a friend went to see it last night.

And let me tell you, never judge a movie by its cover.

i really don't want to say anything more, the less you know, the more enjoyment you'll get, other than that.

it has some clichés moments, but i makes up for the great acting and visual effects. but by GOD... what a roller coaster of emotions. we even had some people leave the cinema, because of the impact of some scenes was so powerful.

and the worst part is, This will actually happen one day, it's not a joke.

a Must see.
