I must have seen this movie 50 or more times ever since it came out in 1987. The acting is awesome, the directing and the writing is great and so are the sets and the costumes (for russian budgets in the 80's anyway) If this movie had Hollywood budgets, it would be so Oscar-worthy. Great music, amazing songs, great voices (that is if you understand russian songwriting). Anyway, I gew up with this movie and to me it's a classic! Sergei Zhigunov is a hottie!!!
