The critics are wrong – Brilliant!
With “The Perfume” it’s like with any blockbuster movie: if the critics praise it, it’s horrible – if the critics hate it, it’s brilliant.
I had the chance to watch a preview of “The Perfume” tonight and I was very surprised: this movie is really good! Okay, it can’t actually make you smell all the scents and odours, but the images and the music allow you to experience the atmosphere and the emotions Grenouille is feeling when he takes in the scents of his environment. You couldn’t have done this much better without the use of real scents at theatres.
Although much of the story is told by a narrative voice (mostly quotes from the novel), the movie is still thrilling and exciting all the way. It’s a very good adaption of Süskind’s novel, sticking to the original plot concerning the major events, leaving away unnecessary subplots (although it’s a pity that funny “lethal gas”-plot was cut out!) and shortening long passages. The result is well-constructed movie that is worth seeing.
The actors, especially Whishaw who plays Grenouille, have done a very good job. Like in the novel, Grenouille is an ambivalent character and you never know whether to love him for his genius talent or to hate him for his cruel murders. Whishaw’s half-crazy, scary gaze made me shiver. Dustin Hoffman as old and unsuccessful parfumeur Baldini was very convincing… I loved the way he talks to Grenouille arrogantly although he recognizes how much more talent the young man has. Baldini is always good for a laugh.
The only thing to criticize is that the movie is not as brutal as the novel. I think they wanted to avoid the FSK 16 rating and so didn’t show much violence, which in my opinion would have been necessary if you wanted the movie to have the same shocking impact on the audience as the novel. For example I was really shocked by the end of the novel – in the movie you hardly see what happens.
However, it’s really a thrilling story visualized excellently – go to the movies and watch “The Perfume”! You won’t be disappointed.
Saw it the year it came out and gave it a 10 and firmly stand by it
….still to this very day. I am a serious film buff, most of my life is dedicated to it. Sometimes there are days when I see 6-7 films. When I give a film the coveted 10 of 10 I immediately expect strong disagreement from others. I often wonder what the average viewer needs from a film to give it that rating?
This film, which I viewed via home theater system, in a dark and quiet uninterrupted environment, pulled me in right from the start. I was immediately immersed into the world that Tom Tykwer had created and it was amazing. I could practically smell the stench of the city and the story was IMO a masterpiece. It was also a wonderful visual experience, The feeling of emotion that the film inspires is truly worthy of the highest rating, any slight indiscretions the film may have had fall to the wayside.
To me, film is not always just to entertain (while of course it is a requirement) but to really achieve greatness it needs to deliver that raw emotion & feeling that words cannot convey and this film did it.
If you haven’t yet seen this film yet I highly recommend it, it will surprise you and exceed your expectations
