Our Take

7.1
Bilal Zouheir

This movie is different from a Netflix release about the same events. Actually, it’s different from any movie you’ve probably seen before. Depicting the terrorist attack that took 77 lives in 2011 in an island near Oslo, Norway, it’s made to make you feel as if you were part of the attack. It’s shot to resemble one take, and the time of the movie is the time it took the attack to unfold (so you’re witnessing it in real-time). While closely based on the accounts of two survivors, it follows a fictional character called Kaja who looks for her sister during the attacks. Utøya: July 22 pushes the limits of what you can watch in a movie but serves as a terrifying testament to the atrocity of a terrorist attack of such nature.
