In the Fade
In the Fade is a drama by Fatih Akin whose breakthrough Head-On was awarded the Golden Bear in Berlin in 2004. Katja is a former addict married to the man who once was her dealer. They have addressed their problems and live a quiet life with their six-year-old son Rocco. When Katja comes to pick them up on the husband’s job after bathing one evening, the office is blown away by a homemade bomb and her family wiped out. Nazis are suspected of committing the crime. Overcome by grief, Katja seeks revenge. Fredrik Sahlin at Kulturnyheterna rated the film 4 out of 5 and found that "In the Fade is undoubtedly a truly exciting work of its time, and its consistent and not at all triumphal ending makes it stay in your heart for a long time."
