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.

"3.6. (DVD) #leffahaaste2018 Mikä se sellainen itäblokki on? Voiko sitä syödä? Nuorena olin töissä hautausmaalla. Isoisäni oli töissä krematoriossa. Minäkin haluan sinne töihin. Yksi leffa haastelistalta ruksittu, vaikkei keskittyminen tähän sunnuntai-iltana ollutkaan kaikista helpointa. Ainakin huumori oli mustaa."

"03.10. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Juraj Herz First half seemed like the worst shit ever, but gladly it took a turn for something really twisted, bleak and interesting towards the end. Part of my horror marathon, although I'd hesitate to call it purely a horror film. "
