Georges Franju's version of a mad scientist trying to play God tells
about a brilliant but controlling and obsessive doctor who is trying to
restore the face of his own beloved daughter that was horribly
disfigured in a car accident caused by his reckless driving. He
requires tissues of recently deceased young women that look like his
daughter and he is not going to wait for them to die in an accident -
he creates the accidents with help of his loyal
secretary/nurse/lover/former patient Louise (Alida Valli of "The Third
Man") who kidnaps the unsuspecting girls and brings them to the
secluded mansion in one of Paris's suburbs where Doctor Génessier is
ready to perform the fascinating and horrifying surgeries.
"Eyes without a Face" is a very impressive, classy picture that has
inspired many later horror movies. The music by Maurice Jarr adds to
the uneasy and creepy atmosphere - it makes you feel like on the
never-stopping ominous merry-go-round and you can't get off it.
