Surreal and creepy story about a plastic surgeon that kidnaps women with the help of his assistant. They remove their faces and tries to transplant to her daughter's face whose face was totally destroyed in a car accident.
The interesting thing about it is that theres something beautiful in this insane story. The music score perfectly suits the film and helped to create the dark atmosphere, the acting is strong and the cinematography is very good.
The use of silent scenes in the film were important to increase the tension and the suspense.
This story made me remind of Pedro Almodóvar's film The Skin I live in.
