In the Fade

Cinema

Directed by Fatih Akin | 2017 | Germany, France | In German with English subtitles | Starring Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Numan Acar, Samia Muriel Chancrin | 106mins | Certificate 18

Diane Kruger gives an astonishing, Cannes Best Actress award-winning performance in this riveting, politically charged drama.

A loving, if unconventional wife and mother, Katja’s (Kruger) life falls apart when her Kurdish husband Nuri (Numan Acar) and their young son Rocco (Rafael Santana) are killed in a bombing in their home city of Hamburg. Struggling to cope with shock and the weight of her tremendous grief, she becomes obsessed with finding the perpetrators and understanding the reasons behind the seemingly senseless killing.

A politically charged tale of grief and violence in modern Germany, Akin’s film dwells on both the pleasures of multiculturalism and the horror it causes on the far right; asking questions about how liberal societies should deal with home-grown extremists, as well as how their victims can fight back.
