Days of the Turbins (Dni Turbinykh) is a 1976 Soviet three-part movie directed by Vladimir Basov. The movie is based on the play by Mikhail Bulgakov. The story takes place during the Russian Civil War in the city of Kiev. The main characters of the movie are the family of Turbins: Colonel Aleksei Turbin (Andrey Myagkov), his younger brother Nikolai (Andrei Rostotsky) and sister Yelena (Valentina Titova).
