# 他人の顔 Tanin No Kao by Hiroshi Teshigahara

After Faust and Balzac's Peau de Chagrin (Wild ass's skin), here is another ambiguous and dangerous contract. This movie is called Tanin No Kao (The face of another) and it was directed in 1966 by Hiroshi Teshigahara. Just like the wonderful Suna no onna (see former post), the scenario is largely based on a Kōbō Abe's novel. It dramatize the story of a disfigured man who is wearing a mask taking over him little by little. The direction is fantastic and the atmosphere of ambiguity is fascinating...
