Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the musical identity of the film Adam wants to be a man by Vytautas Žalakevicius. The author of the paper analyses how the music created by Eduardas Balsys contributes to the final artistic value of this film. Lithuanian authors described film music only theoretically, without practical analysis of particular films. Here, the author draws the conclusion that the film Adam wants to be a man is one of the first artistically integral and significant Lithuanian feature films where the functionality of musical artistic means of expression undoubtedly created the aura of a unique and distinctive early Lithuanian cinema.
