Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

Ah the book!
I've been waiting for a full trailer for months after hearing Alan Rickman was cast to play the father-

For those who have not read it-

Set in France, its the story of Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, a young man with the strongest sense of smell, though he is without scent himself.
He becomes obsessed with capturing the purity of the scent of a virgin.
By the title you can tell not all the attempts work out well for the women.

Its a first time novel from Patrick Suskind, and when published was often cited as the most important German literature in decades.

Be warned the trailor IS in German, but still worth the watch :)

This book was fucking horrid! I loved it. I can't wait to see the film.
