Review: (#1) A frighteningly threatening design that quickly and easily puts the stakes into focus. (#2) The stakes are high in the second design as well and the gravity of the situation is more readily apparent, but the scene is too distant to pull the audience into the drama.

Trailer Rating: B+

Review: If you’re a fan of disaster films, many of the elements in this trailer should create a thrill in your spine. It might have subtitles, but its promise to focus on the human elements of the tragedy give it some weight.

Oscar Prospects:

It could be another Best Foreign Language Film contender.
