This book, Perfume is a pretty amazing read. I'm sure most everyone here has read it, considering its vast popularity. For those who haven't, the film follows the life and times of a serial killer in 18th c. France who does not possess an odour of his own, but has a heightened sense of olfactory awareness. From Dark Horizons: "Perfume: Ridley Scott is attached to direct this adaptation..." I don't recall very much high-octane action in the book, other than a massive orgy that breaks out before a public execution, a ridiculously surreal turn of events in an already strange tale Who else here has read the book, and who thinks that Ridley Scott has what it takes to translate the 'interior monologue' quality of the novel? Who is interested in the prospects of this film being made, and who thinks it's a terrible idea? I want to know! Joseph update: AICN also caught wind of this story and has added some background to the scoop. I guess nobody here either 1) read the book 2) liked the book 3) or cares at all. Too bad, it's a fascinating read and could make for an equally fascinating picture.
