Lilting bittersweet taste of Turkey - The Edge of Heaven review by si

Spoiler Alert
23/04/2009

Featuring a beautiful music score by Shantel, this film follows the lives of a number of Turkish immigrants to Germany, and their coincidental interactions. It touches on political repression, personal and social morals and the far-reaching consequences of our actions. If you are happy to be drawn in to other lives in other cultures and willing to face your own and other's predjudices then this is worth seeing.

Multicultural - The Edge of Heaven review by JD

Spoiler Alert
22/07/2013

This brings totally different characters and cultures together into a single plot. I felt it was a bit disjointed and unreal. Why would a professor move countries to help someone he had never met nor likely to. It lacks purpose. Some of the scenes are poorly acted and very plain, some are plain but have real meaning. It is a jumble of Turkish, Kurdish and German stories of lesbians, prostitutes and refugees being happy, sad and angry.
