  1. dionysus67's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    A compelling drama, beautifully shot in many colorful settings and one that cuts through issues of reconciliation over ethnic/cultural divisions, laterally and horizontally. Germany and Turkey, first and second-generation Turks, parents and children are weaved by the gifted Akin into a thoroughly cinematic tapestry of moral dilemmas, secrets and prejudices that make for great contemplative contemporary cinema.

  2. Sơn Phước's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    The Immigrants movie that James Gray couldn't make.

  3. Superfrog's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    A good story of families, of people not meeting and of the cost of not being honest. The film pulls of the smartass 'look how they missed each other shots' without being ridiculous, which is admirable. The German in turkey arc is probably the weakest. Well recommended

  5. CaÏn Kââ's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    Impressionnant. Un art de l'ellipse, des frôlements, avec des cuts incroyables, des points de vue (caméra) surprenants et si justes, des acteurs tout en gestes, qui racontent des histoires comme en les effleurant, tout en y allant au plus fort. Un coup de poing et une caresse en même temps. On en reste plus qu'affecté.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    On songe, bien sûr, aux éternelles et pathétiques tragédies de l'Antiquité où l’homme n'est qu'un indicible fétu de paille ballotté par un destin qu’il ne maîtrise jamais. Pire peut-être, dont il ne soupçonne, ne devine, ne connaît, ne comprend jamais les effarants et madrés rouages, en pantin dérisoire et merveilleux qu’un destin impassible et arrogant bouscule et malmène imperturbablement. www.cinefiches.com

    Helping each and every soul without knowing.

  11. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    Almost too neat in the storytelling - like, you can see the crease marks where the page was folded - some bits edged towards conceptually over-slick... but I love everything he’s doing. Such a scathing indictment of cultural hypocrisy. But, on the other end, love, family, people living life - real living. Hanna Schygulla made the air in my living room turn electric.

  12. Rui's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    A wonderful film. Smart, surprising, well constructed, humane and absolutely entertaining.

  13. msmichel's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    An exceptional 3 act script from director Fatih Akin resulted in one of his most celebrated films which included a win for best script at Cannes '07. Casting is also very strong throughout with its mix of Turkish and German performers. A moving and mature work that never gives in to cliché or forced catharsis.

  14. Curtis Steele's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    What a riveting story, spell-binding, unlike any other in my experience! The entire film is superbly crafted,virtually flawless. It is unlikely to fade from memory. Thanks to all who contributed to this cineographic excellence!

  16. cinegeek.de's rating of the film The Edge of Heaven

    (...)Ich fand Akins Figuren faszinierend! Keine von ihnen wirkt künstlich konstruiert und für keine wird übermässig viel Zeit aufgewendet, sie vorzustellen. Sie alle versuchen einfach, ihr Leben zu leben und das findet statt innerhalb zweier unterschiedlicher Kulturen. Im Grunde sind es gute Menschen, die wegen ihrer Fehler leiden müssen und versuchen, dass es irgendwie weitergeht. Ist das nicht bei uns allen so?
