MCU of guillotine in an empty room. It casts a rather ominous shadow on the white tile wall behind it. Frame left there is a hose attached to the wall. A man in uniform (prison guard) enters the frame and demonstrates the operation of the guillotine. He demonstrates again, this time we see only the shadow of his demonstration and not the machine or the man. This scene was shot in the Pancraz prison in Prague postwar.
