This dark Czech comedy/fantasy (originally titled Pane vy Jste Vdova) stars Iva Janzurova in three roles, playing an actress, a murderer and a middle-aged lady. The actress and murderer, together with a European king, are on the waiting list for artificial limbs. The doctors in charge fix them up with portions of the anatomies of living human beings--well, they were living, until the doctors carved them up. The middle-aged lady, in fact, is comprised completely of spare body parts. For reasons best known to the screenwriter, this grisly farce ends with a fireworks display.
