Movie Info

In 22 July, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips, United 93) tells the true story of the aftermath of Norway's deadliest terrorist attack. On 22 July 2011, 77 people were killed when a far-right extremist detonated a car bomb in Oslo before carrying out a mass shooting at a leadership camp for teens. 22 July uses the lens of one survivor's physical and emotional journey to portray the country's path to healing and reconciliation.

This might be the first Greengrass movie that doesn't just make you flinch, it makes you cry.

Greengrass puts his audience through the ringer for little reason other than to prove he can effectively dramatize such a horrible event.

'22 July' offers few surprises, and even fewer opportunities for Paul Greengrass to flex his filmmaking muscles.

September 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Greengrass' docu-real aesthetic doesn't allow for grandiosity even when he gives in to more heavy-handed impulses. He's on a soapbox at times, but his message is worth hearing.

September 5, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's both a pulse-pounding depiction of the deadly attacks that shook Norway in 2011 and a sober investigation of the aftermath, evolving into a gripping courtroom drama and a tremendously emotional personal account of one family's struggle to move on.

September 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It's intelligently stern, storm-gray filmmaking, as we've come to expect from Greengrass; if it feels a bit mechanical as well, perhaps this is a near-impossible story to film with both tact and soul.
