Happy End

Happy end 

Oldřich Lipský, CS, 1967, 69 min., OV+FS

Happy end tells the life story of a butcher named Bedřich Frydrych; however, it is told entirely in reverse, giving rise to a different story than the one a forward-flowing narrative would depict. It thus begins with Bedřich's birth (his execution by guillotine), followed by a childhood spent in school (prison), whereupon he sets out into the world and soon marries, although he has to assemble his wife-to-be from various parts (killing and dismembering her, after finding out she is having an affair).
