Description

As absurd and as beautiful as a fairy tale.” (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader)

A tragedy with a horror film set-up: A desperate scientist wants to repair his daughter’s face, disfigured in an accident, and restore her beauty… but his experiments with facial reconstruction require living flesh, and that’s hard to come by. Director Georges Franju treats the lurid plot with a sensitivity and intelligence that elevates the material to a level of real beauty—it’s one of the defining films of the body-horror genre.
