Eyes Without A Face15

Directed by Georges Franju | France/Italy | 1960 | 1h 30m | French w/ English subs. | Starring Pierre Brasseur, Alida Valli, Juliette Mayniel, Alexandre Rignault

In the secluded French countryside, a doctor is riddled with guilt after an accident that he caused disfigures the face of his daughter. In an attempt to restore her looks, he kidnaps young women at night to transplant their faces onto his daughter. This 1960 French-Italian horror shocked audiences on release and still stands up today as a sinister and yet hauntingly elegant story of obsession and the illusion of physical perfection.

Reviews

‘Disturbing, disorienting, quietly terrifying, it’s one of the least known of the world’s great horror movies and, in its own dark way, a startlingly beautiful and artful piece of cinema as well.’
Kenneth Turan, The LA Times

‘Sharp as a scalpel, soft as a caress, this is a weird masterwork.’
★★★★
David Parkinson, Empire Magazine

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
