The Murder of Mr Devil

Kate, an intelligent and attractive forty-something, longs for marriage. When a friend from her youth whom she remembers fondly contacts her, she is delighted and invites the man to dinner. However Mr Devil is not interested in her heart or soul, and instead the gluttonous man wants simply to indulge in her cooking. Told through Kate’s preposterously exaggerated personal experiences, the film is based on a short story by director Ester Krumbachová. Krumbachová was a key figure of the Czechoslovak New Wave, and worked closely with Věra Chytilová (Daisies, Fruit of Paradise).
