Story


Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Pacific ocean in a balsa wood raft in 1947, together with five men, to prove that South Americans already back in pre-Columbian times could have crossed the sea and settle on Polynesian islands. After gathering financing for the trip with loans and donations, they set off on an epic 101 day-long journey across 8,000 kilometers, all while the world was watching. "Kon-Tiki" tells about the origin of Heyerdahl's idea and the events surrounding the group's voyage.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..well-acted and smartly filmed, rarely musters any actual sense of excitement..”
by Sam Adams [A.V. Club]
“.."Kon-Tiki" features a protagonist who was determination itself, a filmmaking style that is square as opposed to cutting edge, and a story that is strong enough to involve us despite its earnest underpinnings..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
“..technically, dramatically and cinematically awesome, Kon-Tiki delivers in spades..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
