IN THE FADE
AUS DEM NICHTS
2017, Magnolia Pictures, 106 min, Germany/France, Dir: Fatih Akin

Katja’s (Diane Kruger) life suddenly falls apart when her husband, Nuri, and son are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo (Denis Moschitto), a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. Though the trial pushes Katja to the edge, her desire for justice is unstoppable. With music by Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme.


MR. NOBODY
2009, Belga Films, 141 min, Belgium, Dir: Jaco Van Dormael

118-year-old Nemo (Jared Leto) hazily recounts the story of his life to a reporter. As the old man's memory fades in and out, he recalls a trio of formative points in his younger life: his parents' divorce; his marriage to Elise (Sarah Polley), depressed from a former lost love and determined to have her ashes sprinkled on Mars; and his later marriage to Jean (Linh Dam Pham), with whom he shared a life of cold, bored luxury. With Diane Kruger. Winner of the Biografilm and Golden Osella Awards and nominated for the Golden Lion Award at the 2009 Venice Film Festival.
