Tipping on the edge of the tracks and threatening to fall under the weight of its hysterics, this film conveys the darkness and chaos that was post-war Russia.
Audience Reviews for The Edge
A Soviet train engineer hooks up with a German woman in the Siberian hinterland -- much to the disapproval of his Soviet compatriots.
I'll start by saying that I'm not sure that I fully understand this film; I think that one might need a more extensive knowledge of Russian post-war history than I have in order to understand this film's context.
I can only respond to what I see, which is a hyper-masculine world of competition and an environment of anti-German prejudice. These two themes are explored in the main relationship, but whether the film is critiquing, lauding, or merely presenting these aspects of Russian post-war life is still unclear to me.
I can also say that I didn't enjoy the film. There wasn't a lot to like, and I had trouble following it. All of the characters are undesirable people.
Overall, as I believe I made clear, I wasn't able to get a good handle on this film.
interesting look at brutality and masculinity, but it's more of an assemblence of events than an actual movie.
