Marionettes is a 1934 Soviet satirical antifascist film directed by Yakov Protazanov and Porfiri Podobed.


The film begins with a prologue in which a master of ceremonies (Ivan Arkadin) introduces the principal cast - all of whom are named after the seven notes of the musical scale (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, and Ti) - in the form of marionettes on a puppet stage.
