Movies 2008:Perfume-The story of a murderer.

leave a comment »

This movie is an adaptation of a popular German novel with the same name. Its about Jean Baptiste Grenouille ,who was born with a extraordinary sense of smell . This talent takes him in an adventurous journey to make the ‘ultimate smell’ , during its course he kills many people.

At the end he sentenced to death for his murders .His execution is planned in front of the whole city.  But something extraordinary happens when he is about to be executed. I leave it to you to watch and appreciate it.  The climax is impressive and has deep meanings.

This is a serious movie and some scenes are quite gross.  As Roger Ebert claims, its a very difficult movie to make .. How would you show an individuals olfactory sense on screen ? But the directory has done a decent job of it.

Verdict: This movie  is not for the faint hearted.  Avoid if watching with your family. But if are serious about movies, and wanted to know why Ebert gave a 4*’s rating and Stanley Kubrick said that a movie can never be made out of the novel, then go ahead. You’ll not be disappointed.
