"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 "
