    what can i say about this movie .whether its music or cinematography or acting or editing .everything in the movie is top notch.the theme of the movie forgiveness is very divine. fatih akin handles this multidimensional subject with great care and it surpasses the film babel in one way 'simplicity'

    A number of people started comparing The Edge of Heaven to Babel/Crash and other vertebrate type storylines alike. And even though there is a structural resemblance, the director Akin, a prodigy of immigration himself, makes a movie oozing nostalgia for home; in one thread home is the love of one's life, in another it is the country of origin, in the other one the bosom of a woman, and in another belonging to a cause. Notable mention should be made to the exceptional editing which invariably adds irony and suspense. Expand

  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.
