Elefantmanden

Elefantmanden (1980)

DramaHistorie

Den grusomt sandfærdige beretning om den slemt deforme, dybt intelligente stakkel, der i Victoria-tidens England må hutle sig gennem tilværelsen som attraktion i et freakshow til spot & finger-pegeri for massen, inden han møder lægen Frederick Treves (Hopkins i sin bedste rolle... der har været mange, men denne slår dem alle!), der som den første får kendskab til Merricks smukke sind og sjæl, er ubeskrivelig stærk og tankevækkende kigning.
