A poorly filmed farce based on Bulgakov's novel and play. The author of the original play owed his very life to hetman Skoropadsky for which he did not hesitate to "thank" when requested by Stalinist regime with a collection of lies. Unfortunately, Bulgakov is a very talented writer, which caused some of the statements, said through the characters, of the story to be popularized undeserving. The movie is, however, made starring some of the best soviet actors. Scenes on the other hand are made inaccurate, with wrong uniforms and settings used. This was done most probably to keep the public in the dark about the true events going on in the civil war of Russian empire and Ukraine.
