This is a 2018 American thriller film about the 2011 Norway attacks and its aftermath. 22 July was the date of the events, where lone wolf terrorist Anders Behring Breivik killed 77. Directed by Paul Greengrass. It features a Norwegian cast (that unfortunately speaks English in a quasi-Scandinavian accent).

Why in the hell is it in English? It reminds me of the completely awful "Snowman", almost entirely casted with English actors who retain their accents. They even did a ridiculous dub over one of the few Scandanavian actors.

There's also a Norwegian film on the same topic: Ut√łya 22, juli directed by Erik Poppe. Haven't seen neither of the movies myself yet, but upon reading the reviews it seems that Greengrass's and Poppe's are quite different, the latter employing the single long-take technique. Just have to gather some strength before watching young people getting slaughtered.

And here's an interview with Greengrass in which he speaks of what he tried to accomplish with the film.
