I wonder is anyone has seen this mini-series? It is still in progress as I know, but so far there are already four episodes. The movie is based on a book of my favorite Russian writer, Mikhail Bulgakov. The main part is performed by Daniel Radcliffe. I would never have thought that I would believe he is a Russian doctor in the movie, but he really did a great job, he is an amazing actor, to perform such a difficult part... it takes a lot.
So far, I have watched the first episode, and I can say that it is absolutely hilarious, I have been laughing out loud while watching. Well, in any case, I hardly advise everyone to watch it, it does not take a lot of time, but the movie is done perfectly well. I even have no doubts that I will like the remaining three episodes.
If anyone else has watched it, I would be happy to hear your thoughts, as the movie is about my country, and by one of my most favorite authors.
Today I've finished watching the last episode. My opinion has not really changes. The movie is worth watching, that is just great, considering that they tried to re-create the atmosphere of absolutely different time and different country. Amazing movie. And though there are a few disgusting moments (well, the movie is about a doctor after all), they are still done with a big deal of humor in it, so it is okay with me. And once again I would like to note that Daniel Radcliffe has done a marvelous job, I have never thought that he is such a talanted actor, that Harry Potter can turn into such a serious role
I hope that they continue shooting the series, and make the second season as they are planning, I am looking forward to seeing new episodes.
I read a book...it’s amaizing .I love Bulgakov’s works.
If you liked the book, you should like the movie. I really recommend watching it. The movie is actually based on two books. Short stories from A Young Doctor's Notebook and also a story from a novel Morphine.
I am really glad that so many people here love Bulgakov's works, I have not know before that he is so popular in other countries, and not only in Russia.
