In the Fade

Dir. Fatih Akin. Germany/France, 2017. 1h 46m. German/subs. Starring Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Numan Acar, Samia Muriel Chancrin, Johannes Krisch, Ulrich Tukur.

Diane Kruger won Best Actress at Cannes 2017 for her formidable performance as a woman seeking revenge for the murder of her husband and young son in a terrorist attack. An edge-of-your-seat thriller that won the Best Foreign Language Film award at the Golden Globes.

‘Kruger shows us the depth of the mother's grief as well as her rage, incomprehension and refusal to be consoled.’ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

'Diane Kruger is quite extraordinary here, her fine features transfigured by emotion, by dreadful loss as she howls in her son’s bunk bed, by incandescent anger in the trial, by fearsome resolve when she decides on revenge.’ ★★★★ David Sexton, London Evening Standard
