Description

The definitive edition of one of the most celebrated and controversial films in cinema history. George Franju's notorious horror story follows an eminent plastic surgeon (Pierre Brasseur, Goto, Island of Love) as he tries to reconstruct his daughter's badly disfigured face by grafting the living tissue from beautiful girls kidnapped by his devoted assistant (Alida Valli, Suspiria).

Decades after it first shocked audiences around the world, often in censored versions, Eyes without a Face remains one the most unsettling and disturbing films ever made and has influenced countless filmmakers, from Jesus Franco and Dario Argento to Pedro Aldomovar (The Skin I Live In).
