I just love this movie. It is easily my favorite psychopath/serial killer movie (much better than The Silence of Lambs or Seven, for example). Tom Tykwer shows his one of the best directors at work right now and it is absolutely his best feature. The cast is just perfect and Ben Whishaw is one amazing actor and I sure will check his future projects. I think it is a fascinating story which eventual... read more

The movie, of course, is a romanticized version, and even a little imaginative from the book, which is gross, greedy, nasty and wonderful. The most demanding, observing every detail of the adjustments, you might not like this. I loved it. Even after the book that blew me away, I could watch this movie and find extremely beautiful. With a gripping story, takes you on a visual journey to there and g... read more

Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, born in the stench of eighteenth century Paris, develops a superior olfactory sense, which he uses to create the world's finest perfumes. His work, however, takes a dark turn as he tries to preserve scents in the search for the ultimate perfume.

Brilliant To The Awful - Movies Watched In 2015 (196 movies items)

"Beautiful, disturbing, and epic came to mind after watching this movie. It has been too long since we have seen this kind of film-making. The director did an amazing job. This movie is like bringing a painting to life while the story told us horrors and sadness. The lead character rarely spoke during the entire movie yet conveyed depth to the viewer. I was impressed with the level of drawn out drama and suspense without losing focus. There are few moments that didn't agree with me but overall, I"

"First viewing - April 8th Back before this film came out I read the book, which I totally dug so I was reluctant to check out this adaptation. I knew it would be a tough task to translate to the big screen, and so I reminded myself before I started this to lower my expectations accordingly. And as adaptations go, this one is decent. Ben Whishaw is excellent as Grenouille, bringing the character to life as best as anyone could expect. The film also manages to capture the tale mostly faithfully "
