The great Russian writer is going mad and is also constipated in this surreal investigation of artistic creation, sex, noses and other things. He puts a devil puppet on one hand and a gypsy girl puppet on the other and has violent three way arguments with himself. A beautiful drowned maiden appears from under his bed clothing, a giant nose runs out of the closet, and pandemonium ensues. Gogol burns his masterpiece and disappears up a ladder to nowhere. Not exactly Russian realism, but fun.
