“Kruger shows us the depth of the mother’s grief as well as her rage, incomprehension and refusal to be consoled.” Independent

A gripping thriller about terrorism, grief and retaliation. Katja’s world collapses when her husband and son are killed in a bomb attack. Two Neo-Nazi suspects get identified and the eventual trial pushes Katja to the edge. Justice, she is now convinced, arises from nowhere but from her own actions…

“Akin makes passionate films that address difficult questions… Given Kruger’s remarkable performance, Akin’s determination as a director and the movie’s excellent production values, In the Fade is not to be missed, no matter how difficult its subject matter.” Film Journal International
