Eyes Without a Face (1960) Review:

This dark film relate the tale of a man willing to do every for the fake of success, even cut through his daughter flesh. The film is extremely slow, in the way clever indie movie can be, but is telling such a powerful story that it manages to remains entertaining all along.

The surgical operation scenes are fascinating and extremely well realized. It is difficult to stop starring at the screen while the guys cut the girl’s face. This movie is really dual and, despite a few horrific scenes, is difficult to associate with the horror genre. Instead, director Georges Franju managed, through the music and the dialogues, to transform this terrible drama into a pretty poem. The end is both dramatic and beautiful, concluding this great tale in remarkable fashion.

The movie was a bit too slow to my taste, but it is a classic piece of horror cinema that should not be forgotten.
