Musical comedy Ar-chi-me-des! was a breakthrough for the Soviet youth of the period of stagnation.

Bass, guitar, keyboard and drums forever change the lives of these ordinary workers. This story of success and finding your place in life by director Oleksandr Pavlovskiy has gathered 26 million viewers in theatres.
