A work of denunciation, in this case of radical Islamism in the time of ISIS, Broken Keys stands out for its classicism and the way it intertwines stories great and small. The music acts as a counterpoint to the horrors of the world in this first film – a work shot through with humanity – by Lebanese director Jimmy Keyrouz.
