A dark and surrealistic romance from the Moscow of the Thirties: an underground writer fells in love with a wife of an high general and ends up in the mental hospital – only to be liberated by devilish Doctor Woland and his burlesque gang.
After producing short animations and art documentaries for over two decades, Cagliostro is now entering into a new path: the first long-metrage puppet animation, 80 minutes version of Mikhail Bulgakov´s mysterious novel MASTER AND MARGARITA is on pre-production stage now.
