A teenage girl struggles to survive and to find her younger sister during the July 2011 terrorist mass murder at a political summer camp on the Norwegian island of Utøya. It is a gut-wrenching experience but the film is made with respect and dignity. The director shot this event in a one-take film that lasts as long as the attack did in real life. It makes you feel like you are in the middle of everything. It is daring of the director to remind us of those people’s suffering and courage. The performance of the actors is outstanding. Not to be missed.

It is an absorbing and moving tribute to the courage of the young victims of Utøya – THE GUARDIAN
Acted with striking naturalism by its cast of unknowns, the feature is also formally impressive, as it is constructed to look like a single shot – HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
