Les Yeux Sans Visage
France | 1959 | Georges Franju
This poetic horror film is one of the movies most frequently referenced in Leos Carax’s Holy Motors (see 4/18); the two films even share the same co-star, Edith Scob. Pierre Brasseur plays a mad plastic surgeon who kidnaps beautiful young women and then attempts to transplant their faces onto his daughter who was disfigured in a car crash. Unfolds like a surrealist’s nightmare! With Alida Valli.
88 min. 35mm. Subtitles.
