DIRECTOR: HIROSHI TESHIGAHARA

CAST: TATSUYA NAKADAI, MACHIKO KYô, MIKIJIRô HIRA, KYôKO KISHIDA

The great Tatsuya Nakadai plays Mr. Okuyama, a businessman disfigured beyond recognition in a freak industrial accident who, through the operations of his psychiatrist, is affixed with a lifelike mask molded from the features of a stranger, a miracle solution that in time becomes a curse, eroding Okuyama’s sense of self and resulting in a disturbing change in his personality. The third Teshigahara/Abe/Takemitsu collaboration, with Woman in the Dunes cinematographer Hiroshi Segawa here doing uncanny, unforgettable work.
