This week's recommendation

The Edge of Heaven

Germany, Turkey, Italy

2007, 122 mins.

German, Turkish, English languages

Directed by Fatih Akin

‘Edge of Heaven’ was the 645th film screened by RFS on 31st March 2009. The film was the fourth ranked film of Season 46, it got an approval mark of 85% from those attending; from season 46 we have also already featured its top three ranked films ‘Lantana’, ‘Not Here To Be Loved’ and ‘My Best Friend’.

'The Edge of Heaven' has a narrative built around a series of accidents and chance encounters and explores topics as varied as the tensions that accompany multiculturalism and globalization to the simpler human drama of how individuals cope with losses for which they bear a portion of the responsibility.  Propelled by beautiful camerawork and scenery that moves back and forth between pastoral idyll and urban chaos as it takes the viewer on a surprising journey that ends with a final image as quiet and beautiful as any in recent cinema.

Full film notes available in the Twickenham & Richmond Tribune here.

 

‘Edge of Heaven’ does not appear to be available for streaming but disks are available from Amazon, eBay, CeX and other retailers.
