While googling the net for finding films based on The Master and Margarita, you may also find the movie The Master and Margarita - The Ball at Satan's, produced by a certain Sergey Pryanishnikov in 2002. It's a full length film (119 minutes), using elements of Bulgakov's novel to link quite vulgar porn scenes to each other. For reasons of decency, we're not presenting this movie on our website.
