“Perfume: The Story of a Murderer”

Another DVD that just showed up in my mailbox. This one’s a beautifully photographed story of a young man born with an extraordinary sense of smell. When he realizes his mission in life, it brings out his darker side and leads to his undoing. And even that has a certain beauty to it. My review from Twitter: A 17th century Frenchman uses his gift to create the perfect scent & leaves a trail of bodies. Who knew? A costume drama for guys. 7 (out of 10)
