    I found this fictional movie somewhat anticlimatic after watching footage of the real thing.

    A number of family tragedies encountered by Thailand natives and tourists as the '04 tsunami disaster set into the coastal shores of the Indian Ocean. Ejiofor, Roth, Collette and Bonneville give great performances to gain credibility to the touching family, journalist, and diplomatic drama within. The original flooding video shot by a real-life tourist ('04) is seamlessly spliced into the wave scene. Although its an HBO film, it's better than a Hollywood production.

    I've always thought that HBO makes some great movies, usually with very original storylines that are sometimes based on real facts and strong characters, very expressive and good skilled. Well Tsunami:The Aftermath is nothing far from it. It shows us pretty intensely, the effects of a tsunami and it's consequences in a 3rd world country but wheretourism is highly looked upon. It also debates many other aspects, like the probability of this tsunami to have been made artificially, for the interest of rebuidling in short for development and money, and we all know that this sort of technology exists. A short example: "But why are the palm trees still standing" a biting question of Nick Fraser (Tim Roth) a journalist asking Ellen (Kate Askfield) a representative of a major Hotel company, looking to rebuild after the aftermath. Another aspect of this is the drama and the suffering of different individuals and their pain and nastyness of paperwork and the allpresent birocracy. But there's always hope and help wothin the human soul (so i've heard), and we can see that thru the whole movie. A very good movie, I much enjoyed with my family, maybe a bit too long for my taste but unique nonetheless. 9/10. I recommend it. Do what you will:))lol1
