Movie Info

Inspired by a true story. July 10, 1982: Kalinka Bamberski, fourteen years old, is found dead in her mother's new house in Germany. Kalinka would spend her vacation there ever since her mother had started a new life with a seductive and charismatic doctor, Dieter Krombach. Although the strange circumstances of her death, which involved rape, point to Krombach, a conspiracy of silence seems to protect him. André Bamberski, Kalinka's father, sets out on a struggle for justice confronted by borders and barriers. Alone against doctors, judges, and even against his ex-wife, who is deep in denial, his determination for his daughter's murderer to be found guilty and sentenced will be relentless - even if it means spending his whole life in order for justice to be done.

Critic Reviews for In Her Name (Au nom de ma fille)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The film benefits from Auteuil's moving lead performance, though the narrative is less exciting than it is resolute.

December 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Auteuil and Koch are perfect rivals and much of the film's success is due to their anti-chemistry, even though they share very little screen time.

April 29, 2020 | Full Review…

A painful and raw film with excellent performances by Daniel Auteuil and Sebastian Koch. [Full review in Spanish]

August 22, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What could have been a sobering telefilm becomes a disturbing and more than worthy film based on real events. [Full review in Spanish]

January 26, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | 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.

December 19, 2016 | Full Review…

An interesting and intense film that lets the viewer make its own conclusions through a very agile ending. [Full review in Spanish]
