Odd but engaging - Perfume: The Story of a Murderer review by PL

An odd film but engaging for the excellent performances throughout and the (sort of) credible tale being narrated by John Hurt. Whether you enjoy the exaggerated elements in characterisation will be personal. I found myself enjoyably carried through the 2 hours although the final climactic scene is stretched to excess. Some darkly violent moments and an overall cloud of gloom suggest the hero's acute sense of smell is not necessarily something to be blessed with.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer - Perfume: The Story of a Murderer review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

The ending is worth waiting for. I think that this film would appeal to most people as it is part fantasy, part crime and partly historical.

I found it enjoyable and a good yarn - a bit of a fairy tale for adults with a real twist. My rating is above average.
