Perfume: The Story of a Murderer 2006
147 mins Germany Director. Tom Tykwer
Patrick Süskind’s acclaimed novel, about a man with an acute sense of smell who kills women in 18th century France to create the perfect perfume, was deemed unfilmable until Tom Tykwer took on the challenge.
Ben Whishaw is excellent in a very difficult role as the murderer, and the film boasts great performances from Alan Rickman and Dustin Hoffman. The orgy scene has to be seen to be believed.
