The fabulous fifties

As I have already mentioned, I'm bad at watching movies in time. So it's only now, when the whole country has already seen it, I have watched Hipsters - a Russian version of Grease, I must add. It's a musical about the rock'n'roll lovers in USSR in 1950s. That type of music and the whole "hipster" image was socially forbidden in the Soviet Union then, so not only is this movie an explosion of dancing and love but also a story about a conflict between the "proper" youth and the "hipsters". The story, I must say, is questionable because some aspects of it differ from the reality greatly. The costumes, however, are worth seeing. I know, I know, what we see on the screen is not exactly what people wore in those days on the streets. But the mood was just like that, rebellion meant glamour, colour, not the opposite.








Still, I guess that no 1950s-style movie can ever beat the beloved Grease. If you know of such a movie please do inform me, I'm in a retro mood these days.
