1979. USA. Directed by Milos Forman. Screenplay by Michael Weller, based on the musical play by Gerome Ragni, James Rado. With John Savage, Treat Williams. A triumph of the musical genre, and an uplifting recollection of America during the Vietnam War, Forman's take on the Broadway sensation celebrates reckless behavior through Twyla Tharp's energetic choreography and a string of unforgettable anthems. Released at the end of the 1970s, the film is marked by a strong nostalgia for the politically charged mood, raw passions, and youthful anxieties of the previous decade. 121 min.
