Eyes without a Face

A brilliant surgeon Dr. Génessier is full of remorse. He is feeling guilty for a car accident in which his daughter Christiane lost her beautiful face. In order to hide the horrible disfigurement, she now has to wear a mask. To rid her of it, Génessier and his assistant Louise kidnap young women and try to transfer their faces to his daughter. All the attempts fail, but the motivation to bring back Christiane’s life, in which she wasn’t afraid of her own reflection and even more afraid of her mask, is too strong to stop Génessier from his blood-curdling actions.

Les yeux sans visage (Georges Franju, FR/IT, 1960, 88 min, OV+ES)
