A true story about Norwegian anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl who attempted to prove that Polynesia was settled by people from Peru and not Asia, and builds a raft to recreate the journey. It's actually really good. Admittedly, it gets a bit melodramatic at times and probably plays up more tension than may have happened, but it's still a film where you find yourself rooting for the people on the raft to succeed in their journey. Recommended.
I worked on the VFX of this movie. Have a look at behind the scenes material here on how some of the effects where done: http://www.stormstudios.no/kontiki
