The older doctor (Jon Hamm) is looking sweaty and wan in his 1934 Moscow practice under the withering gaze of a Soviet soldier. As they both stare meaningfully at his diaries, we are wafted back to 1917 and that spartan clinic in the back of beyond.
On the page this is one of author Mikhail Bulgakov’s most poignant stories, as the young doctor (Daniel Radcliffe), who has grown a feeble beard in the hope that it will make him seem more mature, faces a terrible predicament when a distraught father brings in his gravely injured young daughter.
Prepare for buckets of stomach-churning gore (be warned, it’s unsparing) and low farce.
Vladimir grows increasingly frustrated with his patients, who exploit his naivety and ignore his warnings about the dangers of syphilis. He is blinded by panic, and not helped by his older self, when asked to conduct a double amputation on a girl who has fallen on a lathe. Comedy drama based on a collection of Mikhail Bulgakov's short stories, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm in the same role, 17 years apart.
