An undertaker's assistant marries an executioner's daughter, and the new groom takes on his father-in-law's job but grows real squeamish when the time comes to execute someone. UK TimeOut movie critic wrote: "Regularly voted by its country's critics as the best Spanish film of all time, Berlanga's brilliant dark comedy on the peculiar horror of the garotte has not lost its power over the years."
