Once upon a time in 1955 Moscow, there two cultures: the hip and the square. The hip minority could be found in smoke-filled lairs where flashily attired hepcats jived to the subversive honk of jazz & boogie. The gray-faced square majority, alarmed by the infiltration of Western decadence, relentlessly stalked these rebels. Armed with scissors, they forcibly trimmed their hair and slashed their brightly checkered American outfits. Based on Yuri Korotkovs book Boogie Bones, the story follows the personal revolution of 20-year-old Mels from upstanding member of the Young Communist League to hipster - while finding his identity and absorbing the consequences. Director Valery Todorovsky keeps the film moving by balancing its more serious undercurrents with a liberating sense of fun, with buoyant musical numbers that are as resplendent as GREASE. This movies high spirits cannot be quenched. - NY Times
