The Wave (2015): Excellent Movie

The Wave is a Norwegian catastrophe film (English subtitles) which I like for revealing the delicacy of modern society. Moderns tend to obsess over the near-term, disregarding risk. And we tend to believe in our absolute mastery over nature.

What’s most enjoyable is how the film is free from propaganda: Parents protect their children, and men behave as men.

It’s also pleasant to see a community act as a unit, rather than as a collection of modern asocial consumers who happen to temporarily reside in the same location.
