Two years ago, geologist Kristian Eikjord (Kristoffer Joner) warned everyone about the potential for a catastrophic tsunami in the breathtaking disaster thriller The Wave. Now he’s back with another warning even more terrifying: that a massive earthquake is about to strike Oslo, with its vulnerable urban infrastructure and large population. At the start of the film Kristian has withdrawn from his beloved family, suffering from post-traumatic stress and guilt that he did not save more people in the tsunami disaster. He ignores urgent messages from a fellow geologist, but when the man dies in a mysterious accident inside the Oslofjord tunnel, Kristian reluctantly looks into the research he left behind and discovers convincing proof that a devastating earthquake threatens Oslo. But no one will listen to his frantic warnings. As the quake strikes, Kristian desperately attempts to rescue his scattered family members, braving collapsing skyscrapers and creaking elevator shafts. The Quake delivers spectacular, edge-of-your-seat special effects and a moving story of a family in a life and death struggle. Directed by John Andreas Andersen, cinematographer for the acclaimed film Headhunters. (Fully subtitled)
