"The Face of Another" is a chillling movie about a man who, after an accident, get an artificial face. The story is, of course, about identity, the connection between the face and the personality. At the same time this is a visually complex film. Interspersed through the story are episodes of a film the protagonist has seen, about a young woman with a deformed face. Also, the milieus are quite odd, from the strangely designed and disturbing laboratory of the psychiatrist/scientist who creates the face, to the german beer hall.
The picture on this DVD is very good. And the commentary track with Tony Rayns is really excellent!
