"The Impossible" painfully shows the reality of a tsunamiThree days ago, I had the chance to sit in a theatre in San Francisco to see the limited release of "The Impossible." I am still trying to pick the best words to describe my reaction to the movie.
But I think that I can speak for tsunami survivors from around the world. This is the first time a movie has captured the chaos, pain and horror of the 2004 SE Asia tsunami.
It is not an easy movie to watch - neither for survivors or for movie goers. But it is real. Honest. And worth seeing.
I will post more reactions to the movies over the next several days, and so please check back. And if you were a survivor, and saw the movie, please also share your thoughts and reactions.
I have responded to a few online reviews and articles about the movies including these:
