Good, but not gripping.
4 August 2003 | by (Prince George, British Columbia) – See all my reviews

I fell in love with this movie at the start, simply from the concept of Soviet teenagers undertaking an underground rock band in the late '50s. This aspect of the film was particularly well done, especially the musician's early attempts to learn this foreign music. Unfortunately, the political and romantic sub-plots lacked punch and direction; and I found the ending to be unrealistic and devoid of any bite. Excellent watch if you love the early roots of rock 'n roll; otherwise, skip it.
