Det här är ändå min favorit i filmen Stiljagi. Mel har bestämt sig för att bli stiljaga och ger sig ut i Moskvas konforma klädaffärer för att med hjälp av kodord och hemliga adresser skaffa sig de färgranna kläder som hör subkulturen till.
(Russian: стиляги, the plural of стиляга, literally ”stylish”, ”style hunter”) were members of a youth subculture that existed from the late 1940s until the early 1960s in the USSR. Stilyagi generally opposed the mainstream Soviet ideology of that time and were primarily distinguished by their snappy or unfashionate clothing, considered politically incorrect and contrasting the communist-socialist realities. Moreover, their non-political views, neutral or negative attitudes toward Soviet morality, and their open admiration of Western (especially American) lifestyles were key characteristics that slowly developed during the 1950 decade and further influenced their ideologies. In the mid 1950s, many people were arrested for making recordings on ”bones.” Those found guilty of manufacturing and distributing such recordings received from three to five years of imprisonment in labour camps. Today, the stilyagi are regarded as part of Russian historical social trends which further developed during the late Soviet era (notably the Great Stagnation) and allowed ”informal” views on life (such as hippies, punks and rappers).
