Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

All we need is love

user
27 July: Day 3 As it is still raining in KZN, it's perfect movie weather! The two films on my plate today have the same theme, love, although they are as different as night and day.

Both films were bought by big studios, Fox Searchlight and Warner, bu...

Tom Tykwer and Kees Kasander explore virtual worlds These days, no other stories do as well in the cinemas as stories set in fantastical worlds or that take audiences on a journey into the past. Elaborate adventure-fantasy films like The Lord of the Rings and Eragon and opulent historical epic dramas like Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and Kingdom of Heaven are among the biggest box-office winners. A similar development can be observed in the gaming world. Here, online role-playing games are...
