    Toronto Review: Juan Antonio Bayona's 'The Impossible' Is an Intense Realization of the 2004 Tsunami at Odds With Overstated Sentimentalism

    Bringing a blockbuster vision to a large scale disaster that demands it, Juan Antonio Bayona's "The Impossible" delivers a visceral treatment of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami only hampered by the overwrought sentimentalism of the survival tale at its center.
