Killer hiding cheeks...
30 April 2019 | by manfromplanetxSee all my reviews

After the body of a young nurse is discovered in a forest on the fringes of the close-knit village of Drahovice, suspicions and unease return and begin to mount. The case is disturbingly similar to an unsolved murder here just a few months back. Detectives from the city arrive, at first the deaths seem obviously related but an autopsy on the latest victim questions this line of thinking. "The Man Who Hides His Face" is a very enthralling police procedural, an entertaining who done it ? In charge no nonsense veteran senior detective Kalas (Rudolf Hrusínský). he leads a wonderful cast with an outstanding performance. As the investigation unravels the suspects/motives multiply, twists and turns steer the directions as the police probe pieces together clues extracted from the guarded locals. Beautifully filmed b&w on location in and around the rustic village, a wonderfully atmospheric setting, crosscutting throughout a jarring discordant soundtrack to keep you on edge,..Highly Recommended
