About the Movie

Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco 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, 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. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Ms. Kruger ... leaves a vivid, haunting impression. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Dec 26, 2017

Fresh: A starkly intimate character study that swerves into vigilante thriller-dom, the German-language drama In the Fade is a flawed filmgoing experience, but still a viscerally affecting one. – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly, Dec 26, 2017

Fresh: Akin was inspired to tell the story by real-life political events in Germany, and his skills as a filmmaker are such that escape from this unsettling film is not in the cards. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Dec 26, 2017

Rotten: Superb as Ms. Kruger is, there's nothing she can do to keep the taut, heartfelt narrative from going off the rails. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Dec 28, 2017
