Katja's (Diane Kruger) had met Turkish-born Kurdish Nuri Sekerci (Numan Acar) when she bought hashish from him during her student days. They got married when he was still in prison, although their parents were against the marriage. Since her son Rocco (Rafael Santana) is born, Nuri is no longer working as a drug dealer, because he studied business administration in prison and now runs a translation and tax office in Hamburg.

The blood spurting from her wrists during the suicide attempt indicates she had cut through an artery. This can't be treated at home by wrapping a towel around her wrists, but would instead require immediate medical treatment to repair the damaged artery. See more »
"Aus dem Nichts" is a great movie, partly based on real events.
In its core it's tearing the viewer apart between justice and misery.
Great performances from Diane Krueger but also the rest of the cast create a picture that allows the viewer to feel the pain that is portrayed in this picture.
Thus, a dramatic and emotional picture is created.
The movie felt very real and close to the audience, since a setting is created that we all can relate to in a certain way.
As the movie takes rather unpredictable turns it leaves the viewer behind in disbelieve that this movie is based on real events.
If you are looking for a great German movie, that is moving and irascible, you're good to go.
