Based on Suskind's book, a historical fantasy - to call it just a murder story would be a shame as there's more in it than that. What a lovely and challenge idea - making a film about smells - something that the author captures well in the book but I was worried wouldn't transfer well to the screen. However my fears were allayed from the beginning. The film does a wonderful job of using amazing cinematography and soundscapes to really bring home to you all the multi sensory richness of the time.

Quite a spooky but intriguing story, beautifully filmed.
