The Perfume is the story about a guy who is blessed with the gift of extraordinary smell. He develops an obsession with capturing, essentially, the “scent” of a woman and acts that out in malicious ways — kidnapping and murdering women, then hiding their bodies and clothes around town.
It was an alright movie with a cool concept, but certain parts, such as the ending, were extremely laughable. Ridiculous, actually.
After watching the movie, I would like to read the book to see if the story plays out better… which it probably does, since the books are usually better than the movies – except Fight Club, where I thought both the book and the movie were amazing.
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
