The Executioner

Luis García Berlanga / Spain, Italy 1963 / 87 min. / HD file
A masterfully set, seemingly light film symphony on the most serious of human themes. A work about taking responsibility for decisions that cause a mental conflict. An employee of the funeral home takes the place of the executioner under pressure of circumstances. He hopes he will never have to carry out a death sentence… Film is provided by educational CinEd programme.
