Plot Sypnosis:

This terrifying, darkly comic vision of the horrors of totalitarian ideologies, from Czechoslovak New Wave iconoclast JURAJ HERZ (Morgiana), stars a supremely chilling RUDOLF HRUŠÍNSKÝ (Capricious Summer) as the pathologically morbid Karel Kopfrkingl, a crematorium director in 1930s Prague who believes fervently that death offers the only true relief from human suffering. When he is recruited by the Nazis, Kopfrkingl’s increasingly deranged worldview drives him to formulate his own shocking final solution. Blending the blackest of gallows humor with disorienting expressionistic flourishes—queasy point-of-view shots, distorting lenses, jarring quick cuts—the controversial, long-banned masterpiece The Crematoris one of cinema’s most trenchant and disturbing portraits of the banality of evil.
