The Master and Margaret (Serbo-Croatian: Мајстор и Маргарита, Majstor i Margarita', Italian: Il maestro e Margherita), is a 1972 Italian-Yugoslav film directed by Aleksandar Petrović.

The film is an adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's 1940 novel The Master and Margarita, although it mainly focuses on the parts of the novel set in 1920s Moscow.[1]

It won the Big Golden Arena for Best Film, with Bata Živojinović picking up the Golden Arena for Best Actor at the 1972 Pula Film Festival,[2] and was selected as the Yugoslav entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 45th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.[3]
