Plot Outline:

A doctor feels responsible for ruining his daughter's face in an accident - so much that she must wear a mask. He kidnaps young women with help from his assistant in order to remove their faces and graft it onto his daughter. Despite numerous failures, he refuses to give up, in his twisted mind it is all for his daughter. -- Chris Kavan

3.5/4 

'Eyes Without A Face' evokes realistic horrors through the means of medical science. Characters become villainous when driven to extremes in an attempt to regain normality. There's elements of the grotesque mixed with the melancholy. A more dramatic slow-paced watch than expected. It's a shocker that is not entirely genre specific, but it definitely delivers the shocks. Subtle moments of beauty throughout add a special eeriness to the offsetting nature of the story.

A really great film, much better than I could have ever imagined. It makes you want to see more by Franju. Don't miss the short film on the Criterion disc. One of the top French films and it makes my list (SEE LIST).

This is classic horror at its best. At times beautiful and horrifying this film takes a scientific approach to its madness that makes it all the more frightening.

Professor Genessier zeigt tiefe Reue und er hat allen Grund dazu. Führt aber Reue auch dazu, sein Handeln zu verändern? Genessier ist Spezialist für Transplantationen. Er ist imstande, lebendes Gewebe von einer Person auf eine andere zu übertragen. Beide Menschen bleiben bei dieser Operation am Leben. Nachdem seine Tochter einen schrecklichen Autounfall erleidet, entscheidet er, das Gesicht einer anderen Frau zu transplantieren. Pierre Brasseur spielt den wahnsinnigen Professor, das Herz von Georges Franjus gnadenlosem Horrorfilm aus dem Jahr 1960 (den auch immer der Hauch der Nouvelle Vague umgab).
