This piece is the opening song to Hiroshi Teshigahara’s 1966 film “The Face of Another”, an equally disturbing and visually dynamic style stunner to his more famous film “The Woman in the Dunes”, which were also written by the novelist Kobo Abe, who wrote the books from which both films are based off of.
We love the saunter to this piece, and the brilliant mystery it encapsulates….
Both exceptionally well handled translations from page to screen. And all the more remarkably so, with the original author adapting his own work.
THE FACE OF ANOTHER is very similar in theme to John Frankenheimer’s SECONDS.
