    Cultures clash and then heal by film's end. Awfully heavy-handed allegory of EU-Turkey relations. Very disappointing, in light of Akin's previous effort, Head-On (2001) - a far more honest melodrama.

  1. Intermittently powerful drama explores a cross-cultural estrangement.
  2. Like a more personal, less pretentious version of Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Babel," this spiraling dissection of circumstance, choice and fate is more about thoroughness of vision than tricky storytelling.

    All too often, films about interconnected lives stumble under the weight of coincidences. Not The Edge of Heaven.
