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. Elämä ilman soiton riemua ei tunnu miltään, mutta onneksi vaimon systemaattinen taivuttelu saa perhelääkärin leikkelemään teloitetun murhaajan kädet irti ja liittämään ne Conrad Veidtin esittämän muusikon ruumiiseen.
