Norwegian hit catastrophe movie, The Wave (a.k.a. Bølgen) is making somewhat of a splash.

Sea for yourself in the chilling trailer below:

Rock Bottom

Set in the small, idyllic tourist village of Geiranger in Norway, the film focuses on a family who are starting a new life but, unfortunately for them, a massive mountain crashes into the nearby fjord (that's a deep lake to you and I) causing a tsunami.

I've got a bad feeling about this...

Those inhabitants of Geiranger only have a measly 10 minutes to escape to high land and save their lives.

The official synopsis reads as follows:

"Giving Hollywood a run for its money, the film’s canvas is broad, its effects eerily realistic, and its scale immense. Here comes the flood.”

Floody hell, it sounds scary doesn't it!

Norway's Finest

Made on a modest budget, the film was Norway's submission for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2016 Oscars, but wasn't nominated.

Still, the film has received strong reviews and as you can see from the trailer, the CGI is impressive.

Fittingly, you can stream the film on Amazon Video and iTunes, or watch in theatres from March 4th this year.
