The Edge of Heaven

The Edge of Heaven

Directed by Fatih Akin • 2007 • Turkey, Germany
Starring Baki Davrak, Nursel Köse, Hanna Schygulla

Fatih Akin, the critically acclaimed director of HEAD-ON, weaves overlapping tales of friendship and sexuality into a powerful narrative of universal love, drawing together six characters: an old man and a prostitute forging a partnership, a young scholar reconciling with his past, two young women falling in love, and a mother putting the shattered pieces of her life back together. Akin’s piercing sense of the human condition and contemporary world events charge these hyperlinked stories into a multicultural powder keg.
