Trivia

Soviet censorship had a problem with the film's final sequence, where a motorcycle seems to be flying away. The asked the director, Mikhail Kozakov, "Where is it flying away to? Israel?" (referring to the massive immigration of Russian Jews to Israel at that time). Stunned, Kozakov replied, "No, to the future." See more »

A really decent movie
29 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just watch this brilliantly made film from the 80s USSR and you will love it. It portrays ordinary Moscow citizens from the 50s, the main hero being Kostik (Oleg Menshikov). He depicts his life from the moment that he arrived in Moscow to attend university. The main heroes have plenty of warm and humorous adventures, several broken hearts, yet everything is always alright at the end. It is quite something to watch this movie now and remember those times. This movie will undoubtedly cause some to get a bit nostalgistic, but that just adds to the quality of this film. It was always pleasing to see such great movies from the Soviet Union and always will be.
