Khutsiev's I Am Twenty is a sort of coming of age filmthe generation it deals with is those coming of age in the 1960's, the young adults of Khrushchev's thaw. I Am Twenty follows just returned from the army Sergei, his two best friendsNikolai(Kolia) and Slava, and his eventual love interest, Anya. They all struggle finding their place in the adult world of Moscow 1962 . . . Sergei has just returned from his time in the army and finds it difficult to return home and have the same relations as he did before his time in the armyhe's not really sure what he should be doing; Slava has a wife and child, but still tries to hang around with Kolia and Sergei like nothing has changed; Kolia is a hard worker and also quite a flirt; Anya is in the midst of a divorce and is quite an unstable, flighty character for most of the filmher words and actions don't always add up. One theme in the film is the lack of knowledge from one's eldersit also translates into a sort of teenaged/young adult angst feel. Sergei's father, for example, died in WWII at a very young age so he has never been around to give Sergei advice or help him in this transitioning phase. He gives Sergei one word of advice in a dream 'live'. This is very hopeful, but still doesn't give Sergei much direction (he wouldn't however, know how to help Sergei in this transition phase since he himself never got to live through it). One of the technical highlights of I Am Twenty is the way Moscow is shot. It is a truly beautiful city, and this film does a great job of showing that: the shots of the parks of Moscow and the Kremlin for example are beautiful and can show even one who has never been to the city just how magnificent it is.
