In the Fade

Bother & humbug. The translated title and ending are both predictable and incorrect.

The definition of lazy plotting: the last scene is the only one that matters (because you know another movie is planned).

Clever and quick paced, but the music is by far the best aspect of the film.

Overabundance of metaphor, which does not downplay the film's punch.
