Carnival in Moscow, New Year 1956

It's Moscow and 1955 is approaching its end. Everybody thinks at the New Year's Eve. A carnival would take place at the Culture House. The director is old school; he cannot imagine anything but boring. A group of young amateur artists will do their best to make the Carnival Night unforgettable. And so the night toward New Year 1956 will bring to all C Новым Годoм, C Новым Cчастьeм - New Year, New Luck.

Карнавальная Hочь (Carnival Night), the movie of Eldar Ryazanov featuring a very young Lyudmila Gurchenko; one of the movies of my adolescence: this is my New Year's gift to all of you.

And don't worry if you don't know Russian. I also know just a little bit. Just enjoy the movie: it's fun, it's full of music. And it's a nostalgic window to those times, when today's grandfathers were just youngsters dreaming love. There are today other rhythms, and the way people of 1956 were dressed is just funny. It doesn't matter: young hearts are the same.

Well, and I found also a copy with English subtitles!
