The Master and Margarita is a Russian TV adaption of Soviet writer Mikhail Bulgakov’s eponymous novel. The adaption’s director and screenwriter is Vladimir Bortko.
Bortko was not the first to attempt to transform Bulgakov’s novel to film. Other directors – Andrzej Vajda, Aleksandar Petrovic, and Iurii Kara – tried their hand and achieved limited success. Of all Master and Margarita adaptions, Bortko’s is clearly the best.
