Leviathan by Andrey Zvyagintsev to be Nominated for Oscar

The Russian Oscar committee has selected Andrey Zvyagintsev’s film Leviathan to represent Russia. 

This was reported to Interfax by a source in the Oscar committee on Sunday.

According to the agency’s interlocutor, the Oscar commission was considering two candidates, namely Leviathan and Gorko! directed by Zhora Kryzhovnikov. As a result Zvyagintsev's work got twice more votes than Kryzhovnikov's movie. 

The Leviathan film producer Alexander Rodnyansky commented on the event: “Certainly, we hope very much that our relations with Oscar will go on and then it will be a victory of the big Russian cinema, whatever somebody’s attitude to this film may be”.
