Long regarded as unfilmable, Patrick Suskind's 1985 novel Perfume has finally reached the screen with this tale of an 18th century Parisian orphan who turns mass murderer in search of the perfect scent, 'Love'. Brought up lacking both love and education, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille develops a highly discerning sense of smell which he uses to create exquisite perfumes. His work, however, takes a dark turn as he searches for the ultimate scent. An extraordinarily brave, challenging piece of work. (
