Storyline

While the Cold War heats up on the world stage, rebellious youth in 1955 Moscow wage a cultural battle against dismal Soviet conformity, donning brightly colored black-market clothing, adopting American nicknames and reveling in forbidden jazz. Straight-laced 20-year-old Communist Mels finds these brazen 'hipsters' shocking until he falls under the spell of one, namely Polly, and joins the new revolution. Soon he's a peacock, cavorting in the latest flashy fashions, sporting an enormous pompadour and wailing on the saxophone. Written by Production

Silyagi Russian for Stylish Guy
2 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While on a recent vacation to the Ukraine, I had a chance to see this movie. Though I speak very little Russian, I was able to follow the story quite easily. It is an excellent film about Jazz sub culture in former Soviet Russia. It was visually dynamic and very well filmed. The songs are fantastic and catchy!! I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to it being released on video in the United States. The characters are wonderfully played. The lady I saw the film with told me that it "shined a big smile on America." I highly recommend this movie to anyone interested in Russian movies, musicals or the former Soviet Union.
