Description: Reuniting the star and director of THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, THE HANDS OF ORLAC is a deliriously twisted thriller that blends Grand Guignol chills with the visual and performance styles of German Expressionism. Based on a novel by medical-horror specialist Maurice Renard, it charts the mental disintegration of Paul Orlac (Conrad Veidt), a concert pianist whose hands are amputated after a train crash and replaced with the hands of an executed murderer.

"24.3. 1920-luvun mysteerifilmissä kovan luokan konserttipianisti menettää kätensä upeasti luodussa junaonnettomuudessa.
