"Mitte der 50er Jahre. Der Schrottplatz eines Hüttenkombinats bei Kladno dient als Umerziehungslager für "bourgeoise Elemente" und Feinde des Systems. Die einstigen Werte - vom Christus am Kreuz bis zur Schreibmaschine - werden zu Maschinen für den sozialistischen Aufbau umgeschmolzen. [...] Ein zwischen poetischer Gestaltung, überzeugender humaner Parteinahme und folkloristischen Momenten angelegtes filmisches Meisterwerk, das mit subtil-subversivem Humor die Fassaden von Politik und Ideologie durchlöchert. Virtuos verbinden sich bissige politische Kommentare mit warmherziger Sympathie für die Menschen." []

Set in Prague during the Nazi occupation, this film follows Karl Kopfrkingl, a man who works in a crematorium. Kopfrkingl is obsessed with his work, and believes that death is a release from suffering, and that by incinerating corpses he is in fact liberating their souls. The coming of the Nazis pushes his eccentricity into madness, perverting his already twisted ambitions and offering him the opportunity to live out his fantasies in horrifying fashion. Kopfrkingl takes to the Nazi ideal with frightening ease, perverting his own beliefs as he comes to view himself as a saviour of mankind, at great cost to those around him, particularly his family
