EYES WITHOUT A FACE: A.D.D. Film Review #18


Continuing my series of that genre of films known as "peoples who's faces are bandaged up", one cannot ignore Director Georges Franju. He's known in France as the master of cinema of the "fantastique". Call it poetic art house horror. It's the story of the love of a doctor father obsessed with finding a face to transplant onto his daughters "face" which really isn't a face, but a batch of damaged muscle tissue due to her fathers car accident. Franju was told by his producer "make a horror film, but with no blood because it will create problems with French censors; no animal killing, because it will create problems with English censors, and no mad doctors because it will create problems with German censors" The result? a horror masterpiece with no cliche in sight. 1959, Georges Franju, France, B & W.
