Les yeux sans visage

The arrogant surgeon, Professor Génessier, has disfigured his daughter in a car crash. He tries to restore her beauty by attempting face transplants. His accomplice lures young women from Paris to a country chateau where the unsuccessful operations take place. The dead faceless victims are thrown into the river. But Génessier’s downfall is soon to come. In one of the most lyrically beautiful endings ever filmed, nature will pay homage to his murderer. Eyes without a face is considered Franju’s masterpiece.
