A gripping and emotional legal drama based on a true story that moved France for three decades. Starring Daniel Auteuil (Marius, Fanny) and Sebastian Koch (Homeland, The Life of Others).

In 1982, André Bamberski  learns about the death of his 14 year-old daughter, Kalinka, while she was on vacation with her mother and stepfather  in Germany. Convinced that Kalinka’s death was not an accident, Bamberski begins to investigate. A botched autopsy report raises his suspicions and leads him to accuse Kalinka’s stepfather, Dr Dieter Krombach, as the murderer.Unable to indict Krombach in Germany, Bamberski attempts to take the trial to France, where he will dedicate his life to Kalinka’s justice and the imprisonment of Krombach.Based on the true Kalinka Bamberski case, In Her Name follows the three decade battle faced by a father to bring his daughter’s murderer to justice. Faced with challenges from the French and German legal systems, Bamberski’s story is one of perseverance and obsessive determination.

“Sublime! Sheer triumph, investing us in every moment of Bamberski’s quest for justice. Well-paced scripting and a multitude of game-changing narrative twists, as well as an outstanding performance from Auteuil. A masterful piece of French cinema!” — Andrew McArthur, ThePeoplesmovies  | full review

“With fleet features and darting eyes, Auteuil always excels at indicating fear, at capturing the quicksilver of thought. He applies those skills to wide-ranging use as events, and years, flicker past.” -

Ray Pride, New City Film | full review

“An interesting and intense film that lets the viewer make its own conclusions through a very agile ending.” - Erick Estrada, Cinegarage, Mexico |Full review in Spanish

“Lo mejor de la película es el trabajo de Daniel Auteuil, que desde los primeros minutos se conecta con los espectadores recreando a un hombre bueno, trabajador, optimista, divertido, que lo único que quiere es que su familia sea feliz. A su vez, Sebastian Koch, un popular actor alemán que vimos, entre muchas películas, en Las vidas de los otros, es la elección ideal para dar vida a Krombach, un sujeto atractivo, sin escrúpulos, hábil y peligrosamente inteligente” – Lucero Solórzano, Excelsior |Full review in Spanish
