"Hopping from Germany to Turkey and back again, Akin is out to capture the ways that a globalized world can tear up our hearts, and repair them, too." -- Grade: A-
Los Angeles Times - 05/30/2008
"[C]aptivating....It's a beautiful, unexpectedly enrapturing story about a world in transition and both the closeness and unbridgeable divide between generations and cultures."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/26/2008
Included in Entertainment Weekly's 2008 Films Of The Year -- "All the actors are splendid, but it's Hanna Schygulla, as that scold of a mother, who floors you."

Product Description:

This drama from director Fatih Akin (HEAD-ON) catapults audiences through an unforgettable journey from Turkey to Germany. THE EDGE OF HEAVEN (AUF DER ANDEREN SEITE) explores the relationship between a father and son, as well as the contentious issues of immigration and bureaucracy. Nejet isn't pleased with his father's new girlfriend, a prostitute named Yeter, until he discovers that Yeter is actually a stand-up single parent with a good heart. But, when Yeter suddenly passes away, she leaves in her wake a great divide between Nejet and his father. In a desperate attempt to fill the void, Nejet travels to Germany in search of Yeter's political activist daughter, only to quickly become embroiled in her life. Presented in German, Turkish, and English (with English subtitles), writer-director Akin's THE EDGE OF HEAVEN is a searing tale of interwoven lives.
