If you've ever doubted Kruger's ability to carry a film, In the Fade should put your doubts to rest.
January 27, 2020
As a courtroom thriller, In the Fade delivers.
October 16, 2019
Squarely told with its moral outrage worn plainly on the sleeve, In the Fade is not a particularly artful movie. That said, there's something about the blunt emotionality it speaks in the face of deadly extremist aggression that feels sadly appropriate.

It is an interesting author's film within the revenge thriller genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

Akin takes us through the intense events of the film in a deliberate, almost businesslike way.

When Katja Sekerci learns of the deaths of her Turkish husband and their six-year-old son in a nail-bomb explosion at the Sekercis' Hamburg office, she reacts with the scream of a stricken animal.
April 16, 2019
The upswing in Nationalist sympathy and homegrown terrorism are framed by a mother's grief and quest for vengeance.
April 13, 2019
This powerful, troubling, and topically relevant narrative is a triumph, with Kruger giving a powerhouse performance that tops most -- if not all -- performances seen on the [2018] award circuit.
February 12, 2019
Its mature and delicate exploration of human emotion makes it a moving watch, and it avoids the trap of excessive sentimentality or violence in its portrayal of a survivor yearning for justice.

There are unique moments, to be fair: they are just spaced far apart in this predictable, paint by numbers story.

... conceived with strong performances... never softens up, even when giving signs of momentarily wobbling.
November 12, 2018
Fatih Akin's attempt to dramatise the shocking realities of far right terrorism is at least commendable on paper, but the muddled execution ensures that that the limited emotional impact it does have will only continue to fade over time.
October 10, 2018
It's no mistake that Kruger won Best Actress at Cannes because her Katja is a force.
September 26, 2018
It cleverly incriminates societal assumptions.
August 27, 2018
In The Fade somehow manages to surpass the limitations of its own storyline.
August 20, 2018
Meant to be a blunt object against the recent tide of nationalism and racist ideologies, but it's almost completely ineffective at achieving those goals.
August 6, 2018
In The Fade is a challenging movie to sit through just based on its content, but it's beautifully composed cinematography and phenomenal performances make it the challenges worth it.
July 16, 2018
It's not a perfect movie... still there is an unanswerable force to this angry, unblinking depiction of the consequences of far-right violence in Europe today.
June 27, 2018
In the Fade is never less than gripping.
June 27, 2018
But Kruger, returning to her native Germany presumably to show she's more than just a pretty Hollywood face, is quite magnificent...Worth seeing for her alone.
