IN THE FADE
AUS DEM NICHTS
2017, Magnolia Pictures, 106 min, Germany/France, Dir: Fatih Akin

Katja’s (Diane Kruger) life suddenly falls apart when her husband, Nuri, and son are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo (Denis Moschitto), a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. Though the trial pushes Katja to the edge, her desire for justice is unstoppable. With music by Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme.
