Movie Info

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.

It offers no easy solutions or quick uplift, yet there's still a movie-of-the-week feel to the proceedings, which seem to offer topicality without context.

It asks questions about grief and justice that resonate with these perilous times, all the more so in light of recent terror atrocities the world over.

January 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

[Kruger's] performance sustains interest in the movie when director and co-writer Fatih Akin ("Head-On"), after a highly promising start, takes it into C-grade Liam Neeson territory.

January 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

To say that the many parts of "In the Fade" are held together by Kruger would be an understatement. As a cocktail of grief, fury and regret, [Dianne Kruger is] a remarkably original protagonist.

January 4, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Superb as Ms. Kruger is, there's nothing she can do to keep the taut, heartfelt narrative from going off the rails.

December 28, 2017 | Full Review…

In the Fade boasts an assured sense of style and a meticulously constructed script. Moments that initially appear to be asides turn out to be essential, and the final scenes of the first two chapters are vivid and startling.

Audience Reviews for In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts)


Diane Kruger delivers a powerful performance that conveys with full intensity the pain of losing the people we love to hate and intolerance, in a compelling drama that exposes with sensitivity and intelligence a tragic cycle of violence that brings only more violence.
