The Face of Another (Tanin no kao)

Japan 1966

Details IMDB

Seen 9 April 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 8.0/10

A businessman facially scarred in a laboratory fire receives psychotherapy from a psychiatrist, and obtains an amazingly lifelike mask from the doctor 


My ratings 8.0/10

My impressions:

The mask hides or
Opens your eyes to what is reality

The face is taken for granted
Until a mask has to be used
When a tragedy occurs

That leads to other revelations
The love known for so long
The desire within

Was it worth the effort
The transformation to a new persona
There will be denials that
We remained the same

Some parts has changed
Consciously or otherwise
Follow the flow, the new
Forget the past
As it can never be brought back
