Susan (Eva Green, Cracks, Casino Royale) is a scientist whose research has caused her to neglect virtually everything else in her life, including love. That is until she meets Michael (Ewan McGregor, The Ghost Writer, Angels & Demons), a talented chef, and suddenly everything starts to change not just in Susan s life, but in the entire world. While Susan and Michael are experiencing new and unforeseen depths of feeling, all around the globe a new epidemic is causing people to lose their sensory perceptions. Are Susan and Michael s increasingly intense feelings for each other in spite of the epidemic, or because of it? A life-affirming look at what it means to love and be loved in turbulent times, director David Mackenzie s PERFECT SENSE is equal parts touching romance and chilling thriller.
In staying together as their world evaporates into darkness and silence, they are displaying what anyone in love would recognize as quiet heroism - and perfect sense. --Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

I feel the bad reviews came from people who were looking to watch some kind 28 Days Later film with lots of action and gore. This was a simple concept and more of an emotional story; a philosophical treatment of a doomsday scenario that leaves no time for exploration into cures and origins. As the narrator states, the disease sets upon humanity just as that sudden cold spike left mammoths frozen in the middle of eating their meal of grass thousands of years ago. No warning of what was to come. No time to run away.
The AQ and PQ are both great and have a very clean-cut style of cinematography.
I love the cast and everyone was brilliant in their portrayal of normal people going through a horrible transformation due to a spreading contagion. At it's heart, Perfect Sense is a love story, however it is semi-predictable and at times frustrating to watch. I do love the end, even through I "saw" it coming. I feel the movie trailer may have given too much away, it should have been advertised as a love story and nothing else should have been given away.
I do highly recommend this movie to fans of the cast and of the indie style epidemic film genre.
