Utøya 22. juli (2018)
Tasteful and remarkably well-choreographed rendition of how the 2011 Utøya massacre played out for a handful of fictitious characters, based on real witness accounts. Every single scene has a sense of urgency and desperation to them which to some extent enables us to live through the terror that these kids experienced. Poppe's filmmaking here is expert-class. He recreates the terror and chaos that reigned over this island for 72 minutes utilizing effective camera-techniques, masterful pacing and getting intense performances out of his more or less inexperienced cast. Utøya 22. juli is a film which is bound to leave its mark on whoever sees it.
