This one of the best Russian television projects ever. Made as a New Year TV special in 1996, it became so popular, that it was rerun in only seven days after the premiere. The main factors of the phenomenal success were the concept of using classic soviet songs of the 50s (known to almost every Russian, but never remixed) and modern Russian pop stars singing them, to make a powerful musical. All the key elements are top-notch. Good acting, excellent and hilarious plot, directing and overall atmosphere of the 50s - it all makes this movie a big hit. It's a very good piece of entertainment, beautifully done, touching and appealing to most age groups, so I have no choice :) but to give it 10/10.
