The Edge (2010)

Kray / The Edge (2010)

Genre: Adventure / Drama
Director:Aleksei Uchitel
Starring: Vladimir Mashkov, Yulia Peresild, Anjorka Strechel
Duration: 124 min.

After the end of WWII, a decorated war hero Ignat, is posted to a remote labor camp in Siberia as a train engineer.  Shortly after his arrival, he sets out to find a ghost engine on a nearby island.       


The Edge, directed by Aleksei Uchitel is Russia's official submission to the Foreign Language Film category of the 83rd Academy Awards.  An entertaining and enjoyable film, though maybe a bit commercially oriented and full of Russian stereotypes.  Most memorably there are some brilliantly filmed train racing scenes.
