Tsunami follows a group of people caught up in the days following the devastating Tsunami of 2004. Tim Roth is wonderful as a disheveled journalist out to uncover the corruption of those who see the disaster as a money making opportunity. Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville plays the British Consul trying to bring some order to the chaos and help people at the same time. Toni Collette plays an aid worker who doesn't let anyone get in her way as she assists those in need. The devastation and loss of life is handled in a very respectful way especially as the characters are mostly 'priviledged' tourists suddenly dealing with a very different culture and values. Another gem from HBO.

I thought that Tim Roth was utterly fantastic in this movie. I was enthralled with the whole affair....made me quite reflective, it was a terrible event. It was an honest portrayal told from many differnet perspectives.
