Golden Globe Winner: Best Foreign Language Film
Celebrated German auteur Fatih Akin returns with this gritty and superbly constructed tale—with Diane Krueger in an award-winning performance as a woman wrestling with both fragility and vengeance in the wake of a family tragedy. Out of nowhere, Katja's life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack by extreme Nazi groups. 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.
“Fatih Akin's masterful terrorist thriller is anchored by Diane Kruger's incendiary, fierce Cannes-award-winning performance as a grieving and vengeful widow.” —Anne Thompson, Indiewire "An accomplished thriller with real gravitas...Diane Kruger gives a sensational star turn as a woman who loses her husband and son to a bombing by extreme Nazi groups.” —Pete Hammond, Deadline
