Movie weekend was made possible by Matej.
- Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
- Casino Royale
France. Fish market. Birth of an unwanted child. Birth of a monster and a legend.
The movie is telling a life story of one Jean-Baptiste Grenouille. He is a genius and a monster. A very common combination. He has no scent of his own, but he is the master of scents. He can make people fall in love with a flip of the wrist. But he cannot make people love him. At least not the way he wants them too.
The film is a slight disappointment. I expected so much more from this story but to me, it seems the story was lacking…it. The magic ingredient that turns average into superb. That turns weird in funky. I still have to read the book, but the movie is nothing special. House of wax meet Man in the iron mask. Been there.
Bond. James Bond. Since this is the first of many adventures of James Bond, he`s not much of a gentleman. He breaks stuff, kills with his hands and does not care if his martini is shaken or stirred. Which in turn makes him a better Bond that Brosnan ever was.
The funny bits are there, the not boring action sequences are there and the theme song is catchy. The only downside in my opinion are the Bond ladies which aren`t nothing special.
Still, beats Brosnan`s trio by a mile.
