While tattooed Katja, her ex-con Kurdish-German husband, Nuri, and their young violin-playing son, Rocco, might seem at first glance like an atypical family, in a few short scenes we come to understand the messy and beautiful reality of their life. So, when sudden tragedy strikes in the form of a neo-Nazi terrorist attack, the impact is all the more profound. Katja now finds herself alone, facing grief and imposing probing from authorities and family alike. Acting in her native German, and in her first German production, Kruger delivers a fearless, gut-wrenching, and award-winning performance (she won the best actress award at Cannes) as a woman forced to choose between fading away and continuing the fight for justice. Perhaps there’s a way to do both.

Fatih Akin, Germany, France, 2017, 106 min. German, Greek & English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Numan Acar, Samia Muriel Chancrin, Johannes Krisch.
