'The Titanic of the 21st Century'
So, I watched Juan Antonio Bayona's (The Orphanage) 'The Impossible' in English (not that it made a big difference after watching it in Spanish), and once again, never has a drama movie moved me like this one. What James Cameron did with 'Titanic' (1997), Juan did with this film. In both cases, the films are based on real events. The film centers around one family, who miraculously survived the ordeal in real life, and how they fought to survive the tsunami. The whole cast who portrayed the family members were incredible with their respective roles. It's a must see. How far would you go, if you were in their situation? I can easily call this film 'The Titanic of the 21st century', one of the most powerful films I have ever seen. An emotional roller coaster.
