Foreign drama based on the novel by Ladislav Fuks and directed by Juraj Herz.

The film centres around the demonic, death obsessed Karl Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hrusinsky). He is the owner of a crematorium in the early stages of the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia who finds in the situation an opportunity to fulfil his business ambitions, justify his anti-Semitism and exert his obsession for control.

His discovery that his wife has 'impure' blood sends him into a psychopathic spiral that leads to murder.
