Dir. Juan Antonio Bayona – Spain | 2012 | 114 min.
Cast. Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts Henry (Ewan McGregor) and Maria (Naomi Watts) have taken their three young sons to Thailand to spend Christmas 2004 at an idyllic beachfront resort. The family is playing outside by the pool when a tsunami hits the shore, laying waste to everything in its path. Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona utilizes 3D sound technology — although the film is in 2D — and seamless effects to immerse the viewer in the terrifying life-and-death struggle to survive the rush of water and debris. However, the film is as intimate as it is epic; at times, it feels inspired by the tone Steven Spielberg strikes in films like JURASSIC PARK and WAR OF THE WORLDS. Based on a true story, THE IMPOSSIBLE gives us the terrifying spectacle and emotional drama of a family trying to find each other — dead or alive — among the thousands of strangers searching for each other in the aftermath of a disaster.
