Stuck with a Perfect Woman | Bezva ženská na krku
Directed by Tomáš Hoffman, 2016, 97 min., Czech with English subtitles

Eliska (Petra Hřebíčková) is caught off guard when her husband Paul (Jiří Langmajer) falls for a younger woman, leaving her to start life anew at 40. Without her husband’s financial support, she needs to find a means to survive and ultimately finds work as a teacher at a local school. With little choice for lodging, she decides to move into a former morgue. Little does she know that a sarcastic gravedigger (Ondřej Vetchý) with a grudge on his shoulder already occupies the small house. A series of comical situations ensue as they adapt to their living circumstances that just might bring the two of them together.
