Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Directed by: Tom Tykwer
Dreamworks
The Patrick Süskind novel was called “unfilmable,” but German director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) has done wonders using stylish cinematic techniques to evoke the olfactory sense. And it’s his storytelling mastery that allows us to see innocence and artistry in the passion of a serial killer.
