Germany / 2017 / 105 minutes / DCP / Color
Recalling the gritty love story in the Golden Bear winner Head-On (2004), Akin creates a compelling revenge drama attacking Islamophobia panic and terrorist crimes. When the Neo-Nazis who murdered her Kurdish husband and son get off in court, a Hamburg woman takes justice into her own hands. A story that has become even timelier with the resurgence of right-wing rhetoric plaguing the West, while Diane Kruger’s powerhouse performance embodying the heroine’s inner grief and rage certainly deserved the Cannes Best Actress Award. Best Foreign Language Film, Golden Globe Awards.
