New Year New You
Dir. Georges Franju, France, 1960, 90 mins, 35mm, Cert: 15, French with English Subtitles
Thu 11 January // 20:00
Tickets: £5 (full) / £4 (concession)
At his secluded château in the French countryside, a brilliant, obsessive doctor (Pierre Brasseur) attempts a radical plastic surgery to restore the beauty of his daughter’s disfigured countenance at a horrifying price.
Eyes Without a Face, directed by the supremely talented Georges Franju, is rare in horror cinema for its odd mixture of the ghastly and the lyrical, and it has been a major influence on the genre in the decades since its release. There are images here of terror, of gore, of inexplicable beauty that once seen are never forgotten.
