Kopfrkingl enjoys his job at a crematorium in Czechoslovakia in the late 1930s. He likes reading the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and espouses the view that cremation relieves earthly suffering. At a reception, he meets Reineke, with whom he fought for Austria in the first World War. Reineke convinces Kopfrkingl to emphasize his supposedly German heritage, including sending his timid son to the German school. Reineke then suggests that Kopfrkingl's half-Jewish wife is holding back his advancement in his job.

Movies with "The Kafkian" feel (10 movies items)

"/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ Highly depressing and grim piece from Czechoslovakia - Kafka's homeland. Diligent, educated and overall likeable person mr. Kopfrkingl works as a head-cremator. He has a nice house, lovely family and he approaches his peculiar job in a very serious and creative way, regarding a crematorium as a some kind of a temple that frees people souls through fire. Later on, as nazi's Germany starts to rise, mr. Kopf"
