We meet Kaja (18) 12 minutes before the first shot is fired at the Utøya summer camp July 22nd 2011, which soon is to be the worst day in modern Norway's history. They know about Anders Behring Breivik's bomb in Oslo, but is he here now?
Directed by Eric Poppe (Kongens Nei), starring Andrea Berntzen as Kaja. The film is shot in one take.

Saw this movie in theaters a few months ago. It's well made. The first 20 minutes were extremely intense, to the point where I almost got trouble breathing.

It's pretty toned down compared to what could have been done to a "plot" like this. But obviously the director wanted to be respectful towards the dependents and survivors given that it's not really been that long. But it was still very suspenseful.

Looks like there are only a few countries in Europe that are showing this in theaters though.

I only saw the teaser trailer. Think I'm going to see this soon.
