Secluded in the French countryside, a brilliant, obsessive doctor attempts a radical surgery that could restore the beauty of his daughter's disfigured face- but at a horrifying price. At once ghastly and lyrical, Eyes Without A Face is a true rarity of horror cinema and has influenced countless other films. The Criterion Collection is proud to present George Franju's classic in a long-awaited, fully restored edition.
At his secluded chateau in the French countryside, a brilliant, obsessive doctor (CHILDREN OF PARADISE'S Pierre Brasseur) attempts a radical plastic surgery to restore the beauty of his daughter's disfigured countenance at a horrifying price. EYES WITHOUT A FACE, directed by the supremely talented Georges Franju (Judex), is rare in horror cinema for it's odd mixture of the ghastly and the lyrical, and it has been a major influence on the genre in the decades since it's release. There are images hereof terror, of gore, of inexplicable beauty that once seen are never forgotten.
