From Competition in Cannes, a new thriller from acclaimed German director Fatih Akin (Head-On; The Edge of Heaven).
Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, Farewell My Queen) gives a rare German-language performance in the new film by Fatih Akin. Kruger plays Katja, whose life collapses in the aftermath of a bomb attack that kills her husband and son. But after the time of mourning and injustice comes the time for revenge. Whether making complex dramas like Head-On (which won the Berlinale Golden Bear in 2004) and The Edge of Heaven (Best Screenplay winner at Cannes 2007), or vibrant comedies like Soul Kitchen and Goodbye Berlin, Akin brings a distinctive energy and a keen understanding of German society to his films. The timely In the Fade is no exception, and finds him at his searching, pointed best.
“In the Fade is my personal assessment of current developments in the world, radicalism in society, assassination attempts on innocent people, and most of all, a woman’s unconditional love for her family … even beyond death”. – Fatih Akin
