Perfume was not quite what I expected. Whishaw did a remarkable job acting in a strange role with virtually no talking for the duration of the film. Despite being a bit of a fairy tale, the whole orgiastic absolution at the end was a bit over the top, as was the consumption in a back alley thereafter. An entertaining story to that point, if one is willing to suspend reality, but the ending was a train wreck. 6/10.
