IMDb 7.2

“Kon-Tiki” is a 2012 Norwegian historical drama film directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. The film is based on the true story of Thor Heyerdahl, a Norwegian adventurer and explorer who sailed across the Pacific Ocean from Peru to Polynesia on a balsa wood raft in 1947.

The film follows Heyerdahl, played by Pål Sverre Hagen, as he attempts to prove his theory that South Americans could have settled in Polynesia in pre-Columbian times by crossing the Pacific on a raft similar to those used by ancient Peruvians. Heyerdahl recruits a team of five men to accompany him on the journey, including a Swede, a Norwegian, and three native Polynesians.

The film was shot on location in Norway, Malta, and Thailand, and features stunning cinematography that captures the beauty and danger of the open ocean. The film was well-received by critics, who praised its performances, direction, and epic scale. It was also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 85th Academy Awards.

“Kon-Tiki” is a compelling and inspiring film that celebrates the human spirit of exploration and the determination to push the boundaries of what is possible. It’s a must-see for anyone interested in adventure, history, and the power of the human will.
