  1. Quite simply one of the best discussions of a film I have ever heard. Really interesting and thought provoking. From my humble home in Umbria,Italy I suggest Hiroshi Teshigahara's The Face of Another - not as a remake of Eyes Without A Face but as an unforgettable meditation on identity. Thank you all.
