Bloody Sunday is based on the actual events that took place on January 30th, 1972, where British soldiers shot and killed 13 unarmed participants in the Northern Ireland civil rights movements demonstration. The soldiers were later awarded a medal from the Queen for their involvement. Through the documentary-like film style we follow the day that went from a peaceful demonstration to a tragedy. Bernt Eklund, Expressen, rates the movie 4 out of 5 and concludes, after a description of the events: “After that day 25 years of attacks and terror followed. The magnificent thing with Greangrass’ movie is that it clearly shows why”.
