Plot synopsis
Two heros are placed face to face in this film; a famous medical professor who has kept his bourgeois lifestyle intact and a young man engaged in the Komsomol, an ardent enforcer of mankind's new moral code for the construction of communism. But the severe young man falls in love with the professor's wife...

Commentaries and bibliography
A Severe Young Man [Строгий юноша, director : Abram ROOM, 1936], Gerald McCAUSLAND, rusfilm.pitt.edu, 2012
Camp Cinema : Russian Style, rusfilm.pitt.edu, 2012
 
A philosophical romantic drama which is in certain ways related to the novel by Yu.K.Olesha «Envy». The plot centers around the love triangle, which resulted from the sudden passion of a young komsomol sportsman for an older woman of «balzacian age», who was the wife of a prominent Soviet military official… The decadent and most unorthodox of A.M.Room’s movies (and of Soviet cinema of the 30–50s in general) was accused of formalism and banned from distribution.
