    Political grudges can be hard to control. That urge to exact revenge for the cornerstone for In The Fade. Consider this terrorist laced thriller to be one of the best. See a gutsy lady go all out to settle a score in This momentous Mongrel Media release now I stilling hope ( or hate) at The International Village Cinemas

    Quality films get aired at film festivals and In The Fade is no exception. Actress Diane Kruger is In The zone as a loving mother and wife with a young son living the good life in Berlin. All is well until one day an attack takes her loved one. Who is to blame for the carnage is the question of the day. Past indiscretions of the husband come to light and not before long his heritage comes into question.

    Head on hostility and prejudices boil to the surface as the victim’s Muslim heritage and dubious past come into play. Throw into e mix some Nazi nut jobs and  a trumped up trial the talk of the town and you can sense the pressure boiling. Lost without a family the grieving matriarch decides it’s up to her to seek justice. Three guesses as to how she decides to right those perceived wrongs.

    Smart, sophisticated and rather timely In The Fade raises lots of important questions and is quite fitting doe the times. Just like Rambo and Dirty Harry made heir marks among the public during trying times so will Diane Kruger’s impressionable rendition of a woman caught in a system seemingly out of sync and her own way of making things right.
