The film is particularly atmospheric, with moral dilemmas and causes mixed feelings in the Viewer. Can anyone justify the abominable acts of the doctor? The position of Assistant? If the viewer was in the doctor's position would do the same? Finally, there are limits to science? The doctor is perpetrator or victim of circumstances and vulnerabilities? These and many other questions going through the mind of the viewer during the film.

The film has no particular horror scenes or amazing effects. With its simplicity, however, and the strong feelings that creates manages to grab the Viewer. The Edith Scob is unique in its role. A and is forced to wear permanently a mask to cover her face, he passes the spectator's feelings with the movements of the head, with the look and the attitude of the body.

I love good cinema in all its kinds. But horror movies are my favorite. Nothing compares to a good horror movie. So I consider it my duty to inform you, horror fans for classical and not just horror movies. To remember the old and young people learn.
