The Quake

at BFI London Film Festival

Could reports of subterranean tremors beneath the city of Oslo predict that a catastrophic earthquake is imminent? With the sequel to The Wave (LFF 2015), Director John Andreas Andersen creates another tension-filled, high-stakes geo-thriller.


Several years after heroically saving scores from the tsunami he predicted, geologist Kristian Eikjord (Kristoffer Joner) is a recluse, haunted by thoughts of the missing and those he couldn’t save. Eikjord has lost everything: his drive, his family and, perhaps, his mind. But a tip-off from a former colleague about unusual seismic activity in Oslo sees Eikjord reinvigorated, desperate to find whether the capital, where his wife and children now live, is under threat. With truly spectacular effects and exceptional performances, this is the disaster movie you really need to see on the big screen.
