“22 July” sees Paul Greengrass effectively depict another tragic historical event

While most audience members know Paul Greengrass best as the director of the two best regarded Jason Bourne movies, that’s not where his true specialty resides. He’s far more at home crafting hard hitting docudramas. Bloody Sunday was his calling card film, while United 93 remains his finest hour. It’s in that vein that his latest work firmly sits. 22 July not only marks Greengrass’ return to this style of movie making, it also represents his first foray into putting something out on Netflix. A long and somber true story like this may not be your first assumption for a Netflix release, but the quality here should draw you in. If you don’t know what 22 July stands for, it represents the day that Norway suffered the worst terrorist attack in that country’s history. Taking place on July 22nd back in 2011, extreme right wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik

22 July – Review

July 22, 2011 is the date of the horrific terrorist attack in Norway when 77 people, mostly children, were massacred by a right-wing extremist. 22 July is director Paul Greengrass’ powerful, tense docu-drama about that tragedy, but the film is more about Norway and the people attacked than about home-grown right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik and his attack.

Paul Greengrass has built a reputation for gripping and strikingly realistic films about actual events with Captain Phillips and United 93, but has built a reputation for taut thrillers with the Bourne movies. Greengrass brings both skills to bear in 22 July, crafting a tension-filled film, but focuses less on the attack and more on its aftermath. Greengrass also wrote the script, based on journalist Asne Seierstad’s book “One of Us.

Movie Review – 22 July (2018)

22 July, 2018.

Written and Directed by Paul Greengrass.

Starring Anders Danielsen Lie, Jonas Strand Gravli, Jon Øigarden, Thorbjørn Harr, Seda Witt, and Trim Balaj.

Synopsis:

A three-part story of Norway’s worst terrorist attack in which over seventy people were killed. 22 July looks at the disaster itself, the survivors, Norway’s political system and the lawyers who worked on this horrific case.

22 July is at once a vile recreation of an extremist right-wing terrorist attack (Norway’s deadliest ever), something so revoltingly disturbing and stomach-churning to watch with each senseless death at the hands of the cold, unsettlingly calm, and unquestionably psychopathic Anders Behring Breivik, but writer and director Paul Greengrass’ deft control eventually and wisely transitions the proceedings into an exploration of the survivors and fallout from the country (both civilian and government) in turn moderately justifying the existence of what, no hyperbole, for a while was one of the
