Perfect Sense review

6 October 2011 2:20 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ewan McGregor stars, as Perfect Sense looks to take sci-fi, and do something a little different with it. Here's Luke's take on the film...

Over the years, cinema has presented many theories as to the particulars of mankind’s demise.

It could come in the form of vast, scientifically improbable tsunamis and cataclysmic tectonic shifts. Or, perhaps, a bubonic pandemic that transforms humans into a slobbering pack of mumbling, skin-eating loco-carrion. And there is also possibility that the West’s relentlessly jingoistic realpolitik could finally spark the all-ending nuclear catastrophe (you know, the one that successive governments have somehow tried to prevent by, er, making more bombs) that finally leaves the planet free for The Machines to rule as they see fit.

David McKenzie’s Perfect Sense troubles itself with none of this hackneyed, Hollywood piffle. We do indeed - following a series of debilitating global events - witness the total breakdown of society, »

Eiff 2011: Projectcyclops falls for apocalyptic romance Perfect Sense

24 June 2011 5:49 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Year: 2011

Directors: David Mackenzie

Writers: Kim Fupz Aakeson

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: projectcyclops

Rating: 7 out of 10

Ewan McGregor and Eva Green star in David Mackenzie's apocalyptic romance as a couple who meet, quickly fall in love and then watch as the world begins to end. This film is possibly going to divide a lot of people; a friend I saw it with reacted very negatively towards it and was extremely disappointed, yet I found it to be generally an agreeable experience. I must say I wasn't a big fan of Young Adam, nor of Mackenzie's last film, the Edinburgh set Hallum Foe (released in the Us as Mister Foe) so I can't say I had high expectations, or even any expectations at all as I hadn't even read about the film beyond it's basic premise. So, here goes, my review of Perfect Sense.

Eiff 2011 – Perfect Sense Review

24 June 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Essentially, Perfect Sense is a romantic love story set against an apocalyptic backdrop. It tells of how a chef, Michael (Ewan McGregor), and a scientist, Susan (Eva Green), fall in love as an epidemic begins to rob people of their sensory perceptions.

Kim Fupz Aakeson’s cunningly written screenplay imagines a world in which the inhabitants slowly lose their senses, one by one. The apocalypse is refreshingly personal and, to an extent, psychological. Whilst we are made aware – through cleverly placed and constructed newsreel-style footage – that the epidemic is happening globally, Perfect Sense chooses to focus on a handful of characters rather than the world at large. The most important of these are Michael and Susan, who are drawn together as their lives descend into chaos.

The storytelling style, though an enthralling rollercoaster of emotional highs and lows, is deliberately restrained, with Mackenzie cleverly approaching the material in a subdued, »

Ewan McGregor sci-fi drama Perfect Sense gets UK release after Edinburgh premiere

19 June 2011 12:46 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Sci-fi romance Perfect Sense is to be released in UK cinemas by Arrow Films on October 7, following this weekend's European premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Perfect Sense stars Ewan McGregor, Eva Green (Casino Royale, The Golden Compass, TV series Camelot), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting, Snatch) and Stephen Dillane (44 Inch Chest).

It's directed by British filmmaker David Mackenzie (Spread, Young Adam, Hallam Foe) and written by Kim Fupz Aakeson (To Love Someone, Pure Hearts),

McGregor plays Michael, head chef at a Glasgow restaurant, and Eva Green is Susan, an epidemiologist who is hearing reports across the world of people inexplicably losing their five senses one by one.

They embark on a sensual adventure that sees them experiencing new and unforeseen depths of feeling and moments of pure connection. But is this because they are falling in love or is it because the world as they know it is falling apart? »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Ten

28 January 2011 6:13 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

My Idiot Brother

Opens: 2011

Cast: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Steve Coogan

Director: Jesse Peretz

Summary: Ned is a well-meaning idealist just released from prison for dealing cannabis. In succession, he disrupts the lives and homes of his three sisters: a career-driven journalist about to get her big break; a bisexual hipster whose lies are disrupting her relationship; and a married mother who hasn't noticed that her marriage is falling apart.

Analysis: Scoring a good response over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, this broad light comedy with a sweet heart charmed the pants off The Weinstein Company to the tune of around $6 million for distribution rights. That covers most of its sub-$10 million budget, a number that it could potentially outgross by several factors if the good-natured tone hinted at in the reviews were correct. If anything, the few negatives tended to be because this »

[Sundance Review] Perfect Sense

26 January 2011 11:49 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s a scene about halfway into David Mackenzie’s Perfect Sense in which people become scavengers, rushing about eating everything in plain sight, from hands to flowers to peanut butter. When it’s all said and done, they have lost their ability to taste. It reads more visceral and engaging on the page than it comes across on the screen. Still, this is a unique world from the minds of Mackenzie and his writer Kim Fupz Aakeson, determined to find optimism in the most dire of science-fiction scenarios.

The scenario in question involves the rapid loss of sensory perceptions across the world: first smell, then taste and so on and so on. As this inexplicable pandemic spreads, a romance develops between a chef (Ewan McGregor) and a scientist (Eva Green) in Glasgow. The two stars have a deceivingly natural chemistry, both comfortable with rolling their bare bodies around on screen. »

Sundance Review: 'Perfect Sense'

25 January 2011 11:36 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - True speculative fiction usually starts with a "What if...?" question and the measure of the story's quality isn't necessarily in the quality of the question, so much as the commitment to answering the question in a way that feels literally, or at least emotionally, honest.   Written by Kim Fupz Aakeson and directed by David Mackenzie, the Sundance premiere "Perfect Sense" starts with what could be interpreted as a profoundly silly question.   "What," the movie asks, "would happen if all around the world, people suddenly and inexplicably started losing their sense of smell?"   It almost sounds like »

Perfect Sense Trailer, Photos and Poster

23 January 2011 8:57 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Today we have the trailer photos and poster for Perfect Sense, starring Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting) and Eva Green (Casino Royale), about an epidemic that robs people of their sensory perceptions. This British movie that reunites McGregor with Ewen Bremner for the first time since Trainspotting will premiere at this years Sundance Film Festival on January 24th.

Green plays Susan, an epidemiologist recently out of a relationship gone sour; McGregor is Michael, the charismatic chef who sweeps Susan off her feet and shows her that not all guys are a-holes; except for one tiny problem: pandemic is threatening to change the face of humanity forever.
