Hipsters (Stilyagi) (Valery Todorovsky film) (subtitles)
Another title: Boogie Bones

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 Young 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 become one of them, cavorting in the latest flashy fashions, sporting an enormous pompadour and wailing on the saxophone.
