Quotes

Lara: How are you feeling?
Viljar: I'm okay. And you?
Lara: Yeah. I'm fine. I was in the shower block when it started, so I managed to run and hide. But I got separated from my sister Bano. I'm sorry about Simon and Anders, too.
Viljar: It's shit.
Lara: How is the food here? Is it okay?
Viljar: It's pretty shit, too. Actually, it's *really* shit.
Lara: If you want, I can bring you something. Food, or anything.
Viljar: No. No, I'm fine. I don't have much appetite.
Lara: Do you want anything else? Cigarettes or...
Viljar: That would have been nice.

Norway, je t'aime
11 October 2018 | by darknight242003See all my reviews

This is by far the best movie Netflix has produced. In the hands of a master filmmaker such as Greengrass, the event and the subsequent effects of it gets treated with utmost care and respect.

The actors did a fantastic job and I do not recall the last time I felt so emotionally affected by a movie. The choice of having the actors speak English seemed a little odd at first, but I am glad that was the way it was chosen since reading subtitles would have taken focus away from the excellent performances that were display (especially by the lead survivor actor). By the end, I grew to respect the people and the country of Norway even more, which perhaps was the best thing the movie could have achieved for the victims and survivors.
