Product description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (2.35:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Adapted from Patrick Sskind's clammy, high-toned international best seller, 'Perfume: The Story of a Murderer' tells the story of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille (Ben Whishaw), a skinny, sallow young fellow who grows up in the pungent atmosphere of 18th-century France burdened with a preternaturally sensitive nose. Whereas Mr. Sskind portrayed this condition in ripe, sarcastic prose, the director Tom Tykwer's method is one of stupefying literalism. Exploiting the lush, lurid tones of Frank Griebe's cinematography, he rubs our noses in Grenouille's world by assaulting our eyes with what he smells. Thus the camera lingers on rotting fish, on animal skins at the tannery where Grenouille serves an early apprenticeship, and then on the lissome ladies who become his victims. But the only smell produced by these long, breathy close-ups is a metaphorical one, a foul, stale odor traceable back to the movie itself. ...Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006 ) ( El Perfume - Historia de un asesino ) ( Le Parfum - Histoire d'un meurtrier )

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good, but visually not as strong as expected, and sometimes tiresome
