The trailer for PERFECT SENSE had me fooled. The basic story is about a chef (Ewan McGregor) and an epidemiologist (Eva Green) who meet and fall in love just as a strange pandemic begins–a disease that robs people of their senses one by one over time, each loss preceded by a bout of emotion–loss, existential despair, intense rage, joy. The trailer makes the film appear to be a generic love story, and it is (some may even find it a bit sappy at times), but it’s so much more than that. It’s filled with bittersweet, heartfelt moments (and occasional montages) about how life soldiers on in the face of adversity, and how humans enjoy the world through every sense they have. The end of the world is accepted with something like grace. As an apocalyptic film, it’s one of the best out there, in my view.
