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.

"Filmi beğendim, her ne kadar konusu akil ve mantik cercevesine sığmasa da bir o kadar ilginçti. Zaman zamam sıkıcı yerlerinin olduğu doğrudur fakar akicilik ve konunun tamaminin anlatisi hakkinda ayni seyleri söyleyemem. Uzun süresine rağmen bir çırpıda bitti hikaye. Akilda kalan bazi noktalar yok degil ama izledigimizin sadece film/efsane oldugunu dusununce o kadar da fazla sorgulamaya gerek kalmiyor aslinda. Mükemmel değil, alt/orta sinif kalite film. Izlemek için 8 senedir"

"Visually stunning and beautifully acted story of a young man named Jean-Baptiste Grenouille who is born with am almost supernatural sense of smell (hyperosmia). Grenouille, abandoned by his mother at birth, is unable to bond to others and becomes obsessed with his desire to preserve "every scent", namely, the scents of young women. In order to accomplish this task, dark deeds are performed. Saw May 2014 "
