Ever see 'Perfume: Story of a Murder'?

Ugh! The beginning was hard to bear. But the end? Absurd.

I thought you were going to say you just watched "Drag Me to Hell." I just saw this and it was horrid. Just horrid.

Aww, Perfume is one of my favourite novels. I think it would make more sense if you had read the book first. Not something I pictured coming off well in a film, though it was still intriguing to me. To each his or her own!

Little known fact: "Scentless Apprentice" by Nirvana is about that novel.

I loved the book, too, but you're absolutely right: I can't see it being a terrific movie. It was even an unusual book!

Oh, I just have to laugh. I just saw that and I LOVED it. I thought it was perfect (for the genre).

It's making sense to me that it was originially a book. I think Tom Twyker is a good director but maybe some subjects, and this is one of them, just don't translate to film.
I mean that scene when Grenouille is to be executed and everyone starts taking off their clothes and making out? It's just embarassing

I have heard of that book but I didn't know that there was an actual movie on it. I wonder if the book is just as horrible.

Dh said it was a really good book. I remember watching that last scene in the movie like "WTH is going on here??" Very awkward and out of nowhere!

I saw Perfume and while I can't say that I loved it, it was weird and kind of fascinating. Think I'm gonna read the book. Also, I totally agree with mami to 3 @ Avatar. The visuals were cool but when I think back to seeing the movie, all I think about is the boring overdone plot. Nothing stuck with me, it was so typical. Blech!

Happiness despite misery is a great victory, I think...

It's seriously one of my favorite books. Wasn't super crazy about movie version. The ending scene is better explained in the book, and it makes a lot of sense as a natural plot progression. I could see it being kind of out of nowhere in the movie.

Octopus was the worst movie I've ever seen. I LOVE cheezy B sci-fi/horror movies. This is my FAVORITE genre, but I couldn't make it through this movie. I turned it off.

Maybe I will try again sometime. Or not.

Will not add Perfume to my queue, but may read the book...I am curious now.
