The Messenger Boy (1987) paints a vivid picture of the Soviet youth at the end of the era of stagnation. After failing entrance exams for college, Ivan becomes a courier, which leads him to Katya whose father disapproves of their dating. Ivan's rebelliousness soon creates problems and leads to a surprising denouement. The film received a Special Prize at the XV Moscow International Film Festival.
