The edge of heaven has a new film from Fait Akin.a German director with Turkish descent he won the best screenwriting award at the Cannes film festival in 2007 and it confirms that Akin is really one of the most interesting younger film makers working in Germany and maybe in europe.

 

And in some ways this is a movie about east meeting wests meeting wests. The characters are both Turkish and German and may travel back and forth between those two countries.but it's not a schematic tale of immigration or of culture clash it's really about individual destiny it is about desire about family life about ambition about class about all of these things. And how they work in the world while people move around a lot where people encounter each other by accident where globalization is a both governing abstraction and a fact of daily life.

 

There are three stories are told not quite in chronological order it's sort of the style of narration that we have got used to from babel and crush and movies and that. It's divided basically into three chapters.there are three sets of parents and children that are central to the story.

 

I don't wanna say too much really about the way that these stories intersect(贯穿).but one of wonderful things about this movie is the style of it's story telling.in some cases it gives a way right at the beginning what is gonna happen.two of the chapter titles announced deaths of the characters.so you know before you are gonna meet the characters you know something is gonna happen but you don't know quiet how.there are a lot of surprises and there are a lot of overlaps,a lot of interesting patterns that emerge as these stories get on.a lot of violence,a lot of bad feeling.this is a movie about violence against women,about violence against the state that enacts on it's citizens.about violence that citizens give back the state when they frustrated by what is doing to them.

 

It has a very interesting tone of both engagement and detachment that is Akin is watching on these people and what they do without judging them without steering our sympathy in any particular direction. at the same time there is an e-norm-ous compassion in humanity and even tenderness that emerges in this movie even in it's cruelest and harshest moments.it really offer an interesting window on aspects of life in europe and beyond europe in the world today.
