The Tunnel

When a truck carrying a hazardous load crashes in a tunnel, a lot of people are trapped, including the daughter of a firefighter (Thorbjørn Harr). A disaster movie made in the same vein as The Wave (2015), and obviously, Daylight (1996), that takes place at Christmastime in the Norwegian mountains. The film received some praise for its credibility in showing how an accident like this could happen; tension builds as we follow both victims and rescue crews. The setup is simple but horrifying, and it’s easy to forgive the formulaic nature of challenges the characters are facing.

2019-Norway. 105 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Pål Øie. Cast: Thorbjørn Harr (Stein), Ylva Fuglerud (Elise), Lisa Carlehed (Ingrid), Mikkel Bratt Silset, Peter Førde, Daniel Alexander Skadal.

Trivia: Original title: Tunnelen.
