Das Parfum – Die Geschichte eines Mörders: Directed by Tom Tykwer. With Ben Whishaw, Francesc Albiol, Gonzalo Cunill, Rachel Hurd-Wood. Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, born with a superior olfactory sense, creates the world’s finest perfume. His work, however, takes a dark turn as he searches for the ultimate scent.
“I didnu0026#39;t expect too much of the film as the producer, Bernd Eichinger, didnu0026#39;t succeed in my point of view with other book to film transitions like the name of the rose, the house of spirits or Smillau0026#39;s sense of snow. they were all far too corny and even though each film had its moment, the films just werenu0026#39;t very good. I suspected the same to happen with the perfume. the teaser trailer was excellent, but the regular trailer spoilt a lot as it just showed too much and didnu0026#39;t capture the filmu0026#39;s quality at all. so i entered the film with trepidation and was convinced otherwise. Tom Tykwer showed us again and again that he is a huge talent, be it winter sleeper, Lola runs or the warrior and the empress. the perfume is a visual feast. all roles are perfectly cast, the music, the camera, everything fits together like a perfect jigsaw puzzle. And the film isnu0026#39;t Hollywood-like mainstream like e.g. the Da Vinci Code at all. thank god. it has lots of black humor without getting cynic, it is quite amoral and at other times just immersed in beauty – and every penny of its 50 Mio euro budget shows. how much better to spend 50 Mio in the perfume than 150 Mio in crap movies like Wolfgang Petersenu0026#39;s latest. i am already very much looking forward to Mr Tykweru0026#39;s next film. he plays in another league now.”
