Superficial but realistic look into the world of Europe's terror
This French film is definitely worth seeing for everyone who is interested in the contemporary issue of Islamic terror in Europe. It gives you a good (but short) dive into the world behind the scenes of one of the many radical Islamic terror groups throughout France and Europe.
Sadly the movie is a little superficial when it comes to the characters and their personal stories plus a little too short to tell these kinds of stories. There were very little scenes that have moved me emotionally and it doesn't have many ups and downs.
Also a couple of questions remain unanswered...
Therefore I could only give it 6 stars.
