THE WAVE (Toronto International Film Festival Toronto, Canada 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Starsììì

The Wave—
a film originating in Norway—has serious challenges with dubbing not being in synch with mouth movement. There are also significant challenges with emotional reaction and its timing throughout the film.
