Movie Review: The Edge of Heaven: compelling, powerful drama

It is the final five minutes of the movie that conveys the most powerful emotion.

A son sits on the beach, waiting for his father to return from his fishing trip. The waves ripple endlessly on the shore, a fishing boat lies moored to the left of the frame, a blue sea stretches before him. Even as the end credits roll, the son is still waiting, the waves still wash up the shore…

The best films are best experienced. You enter a theater, the lights go off and you are transported to another world, which is what The Edge of Heaven (Germany, 2007) did to me. Don’t miss it…
