A well-meaning attempt to portray this horrific event, but the film generates more tedium than tension

An interesting aspect of the film is how it looks at the radicalization of those who were involved in the terrorist act.

This is a thoughtful film which attempts to make sense of the details of what happened whilst keeping an eye on the bigger picture.

It's not a Powder Keg, it's subtler than that, and a reflection of the fractured political world we're in right now, and the powder keg that is Europe.
