KON- TIKI

SBS, Fri­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2012)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

The most ex­pen­sive Nor­we­gian film ever pro­duced and an Os­car nom­i­nee for Best For­eign Lan­guage Pic­ture, Kon- Tiki tells the true story of ad­ven­turer Thor Hey­er­dahl ( Pål Sverre Ha­gen) and his 1947 ex­pe­di­tion on a wooden raft across the Pa­cific Ocean from Peru to Poly­ne­sia. Faced with near- death ex­pe­ri­ences and iso­la­tion, this big- budget ad­ven­ture has all the right Hol­ly­wood in­gre­di­ents, in­clud­ing sharks, breath­tak­ing scenery ( it was filmed in lo­ca­tions in­clud­ing Malta and the Mal­dives) and im­pres­sive spe­cial ef­fects. A crowd- pleaser.
