best Soviet period film

I am curious so few comments here …this is truly great film and became classics.

The movie portraits Soviet 'ottepel'' period but is not about politics-

It is about Moscow, sincere human relations, freedom, youth, idealism, great actors' play, great song - 'A ya idu shagau po Moskve i ya proiti eshe smogu!…'.

I like the spirit of the movie (freedom) which has been copied thousands of times in other Russian movies but neither succeeded.

So, honestly, find and see this movie!

My rating: 10/10.
