    Kon-Tiki

    ★★★½

    Kon-Tiki is an impressive Norwegian piece of filmmaking, based on the true story of a scientist longing to personally prove in 1947 that more than 1500 years ago people were able to sail from South America to Polynesia on a raft.

    ★★★★

    Great movie, with top class performances by both Tom Hanks and the Somalian actors. A tense drama that leaves you on the edge of your seat, with the added dimension of the film being based on a true story, although you wish these things wouldn't happen for real.
