Edge of Heaven, The (in German and Turkish)

Rating = A-

The main characters in this film are a father and son, a mother and daughter, and another mother and daughter; and in each case the parent and child are more or less distant from each other. Two of these parent-child couples are Turkish and one is German, and there is a good bit of movement back and forth between Germany and Turkey. Various of these six people are searching for others of them and never finding the person they are seeking but bumping into another of the people without realizing the connection that person has to the person they seek. It sounds complicated, but the movie makes it all very clear. In the end, viewers are left wondering if one of the parent-child pairs will reconcile and whether the remaining people among the original six will coalesce; I think the answer to the first question is clear, and I am hopeful about the answer to the second question.
