Synopsis:
On 22 July 2011, more than 500 youths at a political summer camp on the island of Utoya outside Oslo were targeted by an armed, right-wing extremist. In this first fictional movie about the attack, director Erik Poppe's breathless single-take re-enactment is told entirely from the perspective of a teenage girl Kaja (Andrea Berntzen) and her friends. Minute by minute we watch them trying to escape the gunman as they fight for their survival.

Excellent - Dramatic and disturbing - Utøya: July 22 review by CS

Spoiler Alert
09/05/2019

A sensitive, dramatic and disturbing portrait of the events of the Utøya terrorist shooting filmed from the perspective of a single young woman caught up in the tragedy. Excellently acted by the young cast, the film generates a surprising amount of tension from this single-person focus. Sensitively put together, this is a powerful piece of movie making.

Hard to watch, but gripping - Utøya: July 22 review by RP

Spoiler Alert
18/05/2019

We probably all know, but will never understand what happened.

We watch the confusion and fear spread as the teenagers think the Police are shooting at them .

Probably the most poignant bit is where these young adults try to phone someone, it's mum.

The film lasts approximately the same time as the actual attack, you realise just how quickly life can be snuffed out.
