“Erik Poppe’s brutally effective film is a fictionalised vision of what the children endured, staged as a single take from the second we arrive on the island to the moment we leave.”—The Irish Times
“Instead of affording Breivik the dignity of a pathology — or, again, of even being named at all — this film concerns itself exclusively with the experience of the victims (culled from first-hand testimonies) and with the real threat of violence…U – July 22 cuts through so much of the contemporary cant around gun violence, around white nationalism, around xenophobia, around the politicization of historical tragedy.”—Salon.com
Directed by Erik Poppe (Norway, 2018)
