In real life the Norwegian community really stood together, which is not shown in the movie. At a church a couple of hundred meters away from the blast site, the Norwegian community placed thousands of flowers to pay respects to the deceased and the affected families. Also on the 25th of July 2011, over 80,000 people attended a gathering at Rådhuset in Oslo with red roses to pay their respects. See more »

Quotes

Judge Wenche Arntzen: Can you tell us what happened to you on Utøya, Viljar?
Viljar: Yes.
[has a flashback in his head]
Viljar: He tried to... he tried to kill me. I remember... seeing him... and then running away... trying to find somewhere to hide, and protecting my little brother. I remember being shot. Five times. When I was lying on the beach, I was... all alone. In a kind of pain I couldn't imagine.
Judge Wenche Arntzen: But now you are here.

Too long with strangely little impact
14 October 2018 | by jaxeedSee all my reviews

Very poorly prioritized pacing hurrying through the actual attack in less then 30 minutes, thus missing out on several key aspects making it very surface level and uninspired. The acting is mostly poor, probably because the Norwegian actors were speaking English with sometimes very heavy accents, which unfortunately came off anything but natural. So even though facial expressions were usually on point, what was said almost always sounded as if read from script. Thereby rendering scenes that should have been gut wrenching seem rather silly or stale instead.

The use of handheld camera only served to cheapen the experience, almost making it look like some sort of soap opera. Most of the film is basically hospital and courtroom drama, which could be fair enough except its way too long. It seems to me most of the positive reviews are motivated more by politics then the quality of work on display here. Either that, or they have mistaken this film with Erik Poppe's Utøya 22.juli, which with a full hour shorter runtime leaves much more of an impression.

Almost impressive how they've managed to make this subject matter seem flat and boring, with several strangely failed attempts at being impactful. You almost forget this is based on something that really happened, as you sit there waiting for the film to end. Not recommended.
