Мастер и Маргарита в художественных фильмах
It's amazing how many movie adaptations there exist of The Master and Margarita, and more are coming up. The American production company Stone Village Productions, for instance, is working on a film that should be ready in 2012.
Some films respect the Bulgakov-tradition: they never found their way to the cinema theatres or got completely lost.
The films of Paul Bryers, Oldřich Daněk and Andrzej Wajda have in common that they are only telling the biblical story of The Master and Margarita. The film by Aleksandar Petrovic is exactly the opposite: the action takes entirely place in Moscow, and the biblical story is hardly mentioned.
Some other directors present a highly idiosyncratic view of the story. Both Giovanni Brancale and Andras Szirtes made their films in a contemporary setting, the first in Florence, the other in New York. And the duo Vladimir Vasilyev and Boris Yermolaev tells the story through an intrigue set in the world of the ballet.
