My only complaint is that this movie is way too short at 74 minutes. I don’t know about you, but I need a lot more bearded, half-naked, Norwegian sailing-man action. Actually, an interesting study — in that Heyerdahl’s book goes into so much more fascinating detail (as books normally do) but there is something about seeing actual documentary footage that makes the story more real. When you see the actual Kon-Tiki craft — basically a bunch of logs bobbing up and down in the middle of the Pacific — and think that these men lived on it for 101 days. . .it is all quite striking. Thor Heyerdahl rules and this is the only Norwegian film ever to win an Oscar.
