The courtroom drama seems to be undergoing a revival these days, with samples of the genre surfacing at both the Cannes and Venice film festivals this year. By far the best courtroom drama to wash up in Beirut so far this year is Fatih Akin's "In the Fade". The film premiered at Cannes this spring, where it won Diane Kruger the festival's Best Actress prize. Germany has since nominated Akin's work to represent the country in the Oscar race for best foreign language film, just in time for its regional premiere at Metropolis Sofil Thursday, where it opened German Film Week.Katja (Kruger) says she met Nuri when she bought pot from him. As the film demonstrates, the couple married while he was doing time.The main difference between the two films lies in the plotting.
