When Katja Sekerci’s husband Nuri and six-year-old Rocco son are killed in a bomb explosion, Katja is convinced the culprits are neo-nazis. And when the police refuse to listen to her, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Featuring a remarkably nuanced and forceful performance by lead actress Diane Kruger, IN THE FADE is a solid comeback from Fatih Akin. This is a riveting thriller-drama about a subject which has only grown more relevant since the film premiered in Cannes earlier this year.
Fatih Akin (Germany, 1973) Selected filmography: TSCHICK (2016), THE CUT (2014), SOUL KITCHEN (2009), THE EDGE OF HEAVEN (2007), AGAINST THE WALL (2004)
