Perfume: The Story Of a Murder

This is one of my all time favorite movies. I was terrified to read the book when I was in High School. But seeing as I was one of the biggest Nirvana fans ever, it had to be done.

This movie is based on the Book Perfume by Patrick Suskind. If you too were a Nirvana fan and remember the song Scentless Apprentice, Kurt Cobain wrote it about this book. This is the story of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. He has no scent of his own and after smelling what he thinks is the perfect scent, sets off on a mission to learn how to capture it through what ever means necessary.

Featuring Ben Whishaw, Dustin Hoffman and Alan Rickman this is one of the most beautifully filmed movies I have ever seen.

Is anyone else into "character" driven movies? Not sure how to explain it... but I don't consider it fantasy ... I just like movies that take place in a different time, with different clothing and costumes.  I am not sure what that's really called ha. 

Do yourself an eye opening favor and watch this movie. You will be amazed by your heightened senses when you are done.

    1. Oh really? I thought the book was beyond amazing; but I also thought they did a really good job in the movie. There was about a 10 year lull for me between reading the book and the movie. They did cut a lot out...(solitary mountain chapters) that's for sure! Thanks so much for stopping by :) I am checking out your blog post haste!

    1. Omg lady !! I hope you are ok, I would gladly protect you :( My email is sjwilliams.denver@gmail.com Please don't be afraid of watching this movie. They did an amazing job with the main character, and it kind of leaves you rooting for him..... which sorta makes you doubt your perceptions of people... but either way I don't think it will give you nightmares.
