Master i Margarita - Aleksandr Dzekun
In 1986, Aleksandr Dzekun, director at the Academic Drama Theatre Karl Marx in Saratov, directed a theatre adaptation of The Master and Margarita, a play for which the spectators had to reserve two evenings, since it was too long to be shown in one go.
In 1989, he adaptated his play for television. As suggested by the subtitle - Chapters from the novel - the film doesn't cover the entire novel. Only 21 chapters of it were adaptad in a film of 190 minutes.
