||Synopsis: The Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific Ocean in a balsawood raft in 1947, together with five men, to prove that South Americans back in pre-Columbian times could have crossed the ocean and settled on Polynesian islands. After financing the trips with loans and donations, they set off on an epic 101-day-long trip across 8000 kilometers, while the world was waiting for the result of the trip. The film tells about the origin of the idea, the preparations, and the events on the trip. The "Kon-Tiki" was named after the Inca sun god, Viracocha, and "Kon-Tiki" is an old name for this god. Heyerdahl filmed the expedition, which later became the Academy Award winning documentary in 1951, and he wrote a book about the expedition that was translated into 70 languages and sold more than 50 millions copies around the world. Heyerdahl believed that people from South America could have settled Polynesia in pre-Columbian times, although most anthropologists now believe they did not... Written by OJT

How I love to watch history-telling like this! What talent in both
writing and film making it is! This is both epic and important.
This is the story about the amazing world famous Kon-Tiki trip crossing
the pacific on a balsa-raft just to prove this happened in ancient
times, made by the makers of great Max Manus.
The trip, taken on the basis of an idea of the explorer Thor Heyerdahl,
was completely ludicrous and no one believed it could be done. and how
could a trip like this be told better than by Heyerdahl himself in the
documentary made during the trip.
Back in 1947 this was just the story the world wanted to be told after
the 2nd world war and the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The documentary film from the trip later won Oscar (1951), and the book
was translated into 70 languages, and sold more than 50 million copies
Finally we get to see the trip dramatized as it should be. And the
result is really an amazing and epic film which holds two hours of
explorer-ism, excitement and awe. I think we really get to imagine how
it was to be 6 persons floating on an uncontrollable raft in the middle
of nowhere for more than hundred days. The bore, the awe of
discoveries, the fear of weather, sharks and whales. The psychological
toll, the friendship...
It's a great story and a great film which will make new generations
pick up the book with the same name, before they watch the original
documentary. Beautifully filmed, well played, even down to Heyerdahl
incredibly bad English pronunciation. Not all is accurate. There's been
a debate around the premiere about making Herman Watzinger such a wimpy
character, when we actually was a Norwegain 100 m record holder and a
strong guy with good looks, but the writers found the story needed
heart, and not only bald and crazy feeling-less young men. I agree.
Over 100 days on a raft is at least 90 days of boredom.
Thor Heyerdahl himself made this trip to prove his idea, which no one
would believe, and later got famous. He made the trip though he was not
only not able to swim, but actually afraid of water, can you imagine!
And it also tells the story of those left behind, wife and kids.
This is the most expensive Norwegian film production ever, and the
story is a Norwegian sacred explorers story, as good as they come,
changing world history. Thankfully the film floats as good as the raft,
and is well wort ha watch. Great manuscript, beautifully filmed, good
The film comes in both a Norwegian and an international (English)
spoken version, which gives the movie a possibility to be shown all
over the world. And it will. Treat yourself to an insane, but epic
trip, and get to be an explorer yourself. This is great storytelling!
It loses one of 10 stars due to the irritating (though factual) English
pronunciation of Heryerdahl. Not necessary to re-experience that to
make a good story.
