Susanne (Hanna Schygulla) supports her daughter's lover, Ayten (Nurgül Yesilçay)

I had hoped to interview director Fatih Akin, but he's been busy with jury duty at Cannes, as president of the Un Certain Regard section for young and experimental filmmakers. His new film, "Edge of Heaven" is a mournful lament after the throbbing wail of "Head-On" in 2004. It's a tale of love and rebellion among Turkish and German adult children and their parents.
