Perfume : Movie PosterOld movie but I'm sure many out there have missed it. You must be thinking...why is he reviewing such an old movie? Perfume...hmm...looks like a movie where I'm sure to fall asleep five mins after the movie starts. Well that's what i thought when i saw the title but i decided to risk it.

This movie is an adaptation of the novel Perfume by Patrick Süskind.It starts off with a guy called Jean-Baptiste Grenouille played by Ben Whishaw who's about to be executed for a crime and i was thinking.."this skinny innocent looking guy?" Then the movie flashbacks to his past and about his strong sense of smell and once i started watching more of it i slowly started to smell myself and things around me! "whoa...wait a min..whats he talking about?" YES this movie really pulls you into the movie and you seriously concentrate trying to smell everything around you. I'm sure you will smell things you've never smelt before, "i guess that's enough for now before things get outta hand"! Through narration it was understood that smell was connected to his emotions.

Well the story revolves around him trying to make the perfect perfume by preserving the scent of a female who he falls in love with. I highly recommend it to all out there. Two thumbs up for such a unique storyline and if u still dont believe me check out the trailer.
