A 26-ft high wave is powering its way down the North Sea and heading for London. Nothing can stop it.
The Deputy Prime Minister faces the biggest disaster ever to hit the British Isles. Thousands will die, homes, roads, hospitals and buildings will be washed away. Britain as a viable economy will be sunk beneath the massive storm surge that will rise and rise as it is funnelled up the Thames Estuary.
David Suchet, Robert Carlyle, Joanne Whalley and Sir Tom Courtenay star in Flood. It’s the story of how the government and the people of Britain would react if the unthinkable happened. Filmed in South Africa using 24 water stages containing more than 10,000 litres of water each, Flood is a stunning spectacle.
Computer-generated imagery shows what would happen if a storm surge hundreds of kilometres across was whipped up by high tides and a huge Atlantic weather front.
Actor David Suchet explains: “I play the human being at the centre of the drama who has the weight of the tragedy on his shoulders. He is under pressure the whole time. The story takes place within a very short time, about 12 to 15 hours. The storm moves from Wick in Scotland to London. It’s very fast moving and the characters are moving very quickly, too.”
Co-star Robert Carlyle adds: “In some disaster movies, what’s often missing is a heart in the story. When I read the script I detected that this had a heart. And once I found out Tom Courtenay was in it, that made up my mind.
“It’s the most physical film I’ve ever done. I was wet and soaked through at least 75% of the time. I guess that’s not too surprising given the nature of the film.”
