Samuel Goldwyn Films close to ‘Edge’

It will release helmer Uchitel's drama in U.S.

MOSCOW — The winner of Russia’s annual Nika film awards, Aleksei Uchitel’s post-war drama “The Edge,” is to be released in the U.S. next month.

The film tells the story of a shell-shocked Red Army railway engineer sent to a remote Siberian labor camp just after the end of World War Two where steam engines are being pushed to their limit.

Film centers on the engineer’s troubled relationships with a Russian woman and a young German woman

“The Edge,” distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films, opens on May 9 — the date Russia marks as Victory Day, commemorating the end of the war in Europe in 1945.

Russia’s nomination for best foreign-language Oscar, pic will screen in New York, Los Angeles and other major cities on around 35 copies before rolling out to art house venues across the country, producer Kira Saksaganskaya told Variety Monday.

Uchitel’s last film, Chechen war drama “Captive,” won best director honors at the Czech Republic’s Karlovy Vary Film Festival in 2008.
