French cinema with excellent performances and fantastic atmosphere. The film grapples with his obsession to scientist managed the impossible. To succeed we must break ethical rules as well as laws whose violation brings severe consequences. Until I can get a man to make you happy not only his favorite person, in this case his daughter, but also to satisfy his own ego? Through the role of the doctor (Pierre Brasseur) seeing a hard man who tramples everything for science. Next to the Secretary (Alida Valli) occurs more fragile but obedient to his wishes. And finally, the tragic figure of the daughter (Edith Scob) who stoically endures anything to gain back her face.
When the film was screened at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 1960, during the surgery, fainted, seven people in the movie.
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.
