5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Sent., August 4, 2007
This review is from: Perfume - The Story Of A Murderer (DVD)
The sense of smell has never be so compelling and so wonderfully put on film then it has in "Perfume - Story of a Murderer".

The movie takes place in Paris 300 years ago and tells the story of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, played by Ben Whishaw, who is an orphan with the best sense of smell in the world.

Jean's goal in life is to make a perfume that captures the esseance of smell and never goes faint, a perfume so potent that people loose track of all reality. Jean's life gets twisted and darkened has he looks and searches for the sents needed to complet is masterpice and what's portrayed is a man's spiral in a hateful but unknowing place.

Perfume wraps yourself with its world and its personlity so effectivley, that the ending will slap you in the face. The preformaces of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille by Ben Whishaw is a wonder to watch...you see a little Hannibl Lector in him.

The DVD does the story justice and I can't give it enough praise without sounding like a rambling idiot anymore. For a uniniqe vewing experince everyone must check this movie out.
