Bølgen – The Wave

Bølgen – The Wave
Norway has produced it’s first disaster movie, based on an entirely plausible scenario where the mountain section known as Åkerneset (https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%85kerneset), slides into the Geiranger fjord. When the landslide happens, it will take ten minutes before an 80 meter / 240ft tall tsunami wave hits Geiranger in the inner end of the fjord. Similar landslides have happened in recent time – http://www.dagbladet.no/magasinet/2008/03/27/530700.html – In 1934, 43 people was killed in Tafjord, Fjørå og Sylte after an 17m high wave hit during night.

Norwegian spoken, and no english subtitles I’m afraid – but that wave is very scary – regardless of language.
