Aus Dem Nichts - Red Carpet Premiere

Last night was the red carpet showing of Aus Dem Nichts or In The Fade, by it's english title. The film was directed by Faith Akin and starred Diane Kruger as a woman who had just lost her son and husband in a vicious bomb attack set by unknown enemies. Throughout the film, Katja (Kruger) is faced with judgement and scrutiny not only from the police, but also her loved ones, making her period of mourning all taht more difficult.

Diane Kruger delivers such a powerful performance as the protagonist, she is both provacative and heartbreaking. The film is in competition for the Palme d'Or, and the sheer use of composition in each scene adds to the well built atmospheric balance between tension and anguish that director Akin cultivated so carefully. The film uses striking imagery that lasts with the viewer long after each scene ends. I personally feel this was the best film I was able to see at the Cannes Film Festival.
