Grotesque in the sense that it is about the story of a murderer but it is also beautifully stunning at the same time. This movie is so brilliant that you’d watch it from beginning to end with such attention. Aside from its masterful storyline, the ending is one of a kind. You can try to guess but the chances of getting it right is of the tenths of a percent.
Based on the best selling novel Perfume by Patrick Suskind, Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer is a must see movie that will put you in awe. Set in the 18th century Paris, France, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is the most remarkable being in existence yet history chose to forget about him. His genius would have given him everything he desired except he only desired one thing in his life and like all other geniuses we know, he would stop at nothing to get it.
Released by notable film distributors, DreamWorks Pictures (USA release), 20th Century Fox (Argentina release), and Buena Vista International (Italy release) and co-stared by the famous Dustin Hoffman, it made up to over $100 million worldwide.
This movie is truly magnificent and beyond imagination. As Roger Joseph Ebert (a Pulitzer Prize-winning American film critic and screenwriter) put it, “You may not savor it, but you will not stop watching it, in horror and fascination.”
