A businessman with a disfigured face obtains a lifelike mask from his doctor, but the mask starts altering his personality.

Bearing traces of both Frankenstein and the 1959 Georges Franju horror classic Eyes without a Face, the Japanese The Face of Another is a disturbing Japanese drama featuring Tatsuya Nakadai. His face horribly disfigured in an accident, Nakadai, a wealthy industrialist, commissions a special mask from a renowned plastic surgeon. Nakadai's wife fails to recognize her husband and makes advances to him, which effectively destroys their relationship. Driven insane, Nakadai turns to murder to compensate for the loss of his identity. 
The melodramatic elements of the film are neatly blended with moments of erotica and generous doses of existential philosophy. The Face of Another is another thought-provoking "documentary fantasy" from the director of the cult classic Woman in the Dunes.

    Thank you for posting this movie, note that like woman in the dunes, this was adapted from an already extraordinary novel by Kobo Abe. Teshigahara and Abe's styles matched perfectly. From memory i think they also gave us "pitfall". Great Post.

    Thank you!

    Tom
