Trivia The Impossible

During the shooting of the film, the family in which the story of 'The Impossible' is based, was present to give advice, especially to Naomi Watts, actress who plays the character of Maria Belon. Some of the scenes of the film were shot in the hotel where the Belon family stayed when the tsunami hit. But a scale model was used for showing the destruction caused by the disaster. The scene when the tsunami impacts the hotel was recorded only once. It would cost too much to rebuild the set to shoot it again.
