A world-famous pianist loses both hands in an accident. When new hands are grafted on, he doesn’t know they once belonged to a murderer.
A gem of poetic horror from the golden age of Weimar expressionism, The Hands of Orlac reunites Conrad Veidt and Robert Wiene, the great star and director of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Hit with censorship in its day, the restored original spins a spellbinding tale of madness and obsession.
