I hope it is ok to recommend a film released before 2017.

Noyade Interdite 1987 aka Widow's Walk from  Pierre Granier-Deferre  with Philippe Noiret,Guy Marchand, Marie Trintignant and others.Very good cop movie,2 cops who do not like each other are in a beach resort,4 murders in 4 days.a genuine surprise ending prefigures a big hit (1991) by several years.You will guess it when you will see it..8/10

Utøya: July 22 is based on the true events on the Norwegian island on the day of Anders Breivik's assault. It's filmed in a realistic style with a hand camera. It looks like it's shot in one major take, although that's not strictly so. It shows the experience of the young people in the camp. Andrea Berntzen plays the leading character who's missing her younger sister. After twenty minutes the first shots sound. The young people flee into the woods and try to save themselves. The next seventy minutes are full of panic and uncertainty. It's very intense.

Happy As Lazzaro (Lazzaro Felice) was inspired by a news story in the 1990s. A group of farmhands was working in a sharecropping system, unaware that unpaid labour has been banned a long time ago. After their release they don't know what to do and become beggars in the city. Magical realism comes in when one of the farmhands, the naive Lazzaro, wakes up after being dead or asleep for twenty-five years without getting older. It's a weird but fascinating film.

I've seen 22 July, also from 2018, but English-language and from director Paul Greengrass. It covers the same event, but from the point of view of a young man (Jonas Strand Gravli), as well as a bit from the shooter's point of view. Have you seen this version as well, and if so, how would you compare the two? I liked the English-language version, or I should say, I was moved by it.

I've seen both and prefer the foreign version. The English one is moving but revolves more around (a fictional?) love plot involving the survivor rather than focusing on the crime that happened. Also it was an odd choice to hire actual Norwegians but have them speak English throughout it.

Decision: Liquidation - The Russian serviceman watches his best friend get beheaded by the muslim fundamentalist during the Chechen wars. Two decades later, this terrorist is plotting to assassinate the Russian leader and he must come out of retirement to kill him for his nation and for his deceased friend, who still lives on in his memory. With the help of local Chechens and other operatives he will infiltrate the fundamentalist sect and do what he can to "liquidate" him. This is a cheesy action film but has some fun scenes. If you like the spy films and Daniel Craig type films, you may enjoy this.

I haven't seen the English spoken 22 July yet. Erik Poppe's film focuses entirely on the point of view of the victims and survivors. The shooter is only visible vaguely in a flash. My expectations of the English spoken film aren't as high, but it's on my watchlist.
