Description

IN THE FADE. Germany/France 2017, 106 mins (18)

Directed by Fatih Akin


NB film starts promptly at 8.30pm

Akin brings us an important film giving focus to the impact of xenophobia rather than the much-charted rise of extremist views in western countries, in this case Germany. In the Fade has three distinct parts, first, a terrorist attack and the effect on a woman, Katja (Kruger); the second charts the woman’s pursuit of justice in a court, so far so satisfyingly procedural. In the third part the film changes pace, place and tone and the film comes into its own as a tense thriller. Katja’s husband was a Turkish immigrant. All along the police have assumed the murder is Islamist/gang-related, Katja’s convinced they’re wrong. The film has a significant question at its core: when far-right extremists use existing legal systems to protect themselves, what can victims of violence do? What does Katja do? Diana Kruger, winner of Cannes Best Actress ‘scorches the screen as a victim of terrorism’. Vanessa H. Larson, The Washington Post. 13 other major awards so far.
