Director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) has turned this best-selling novel into "a visceral thriller" that's "deeply, lushly, delightfully sinister." (Christy Lemire, Associated Press). With Dustin Hoffman and Alan Rickman headlining an all-star cast, Perfume tells the story of a French peasant blessed and cursed with a sense of smell so keen it is his primary experience of the world. But when first aroused by a young woman's scent, his desire to forever capture her essence quickly mutates into a dark and deadly erotic compulsion. The terror and tension mount with each beautiful victim in this spellbinding tale that culminates in a finale as unexpected as it is unforgettable.
