|NFC News Story that inspired "Scentless Apprentice" turned into movie|
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer is a new movie coming out based on the novel by Patrick Süskind. The story, about a person born with no smell, also inspired Kurt Cobain when he wrote the In Utero classic, Scentless Apprentice. The movie, which features a cast that includes Dustin Hoffman and Alan Rickman is described as follows by one synopsis:
"Based on the bestselling novel by Patrick Süskind, PERFUME is a terrifying story of murder and obsession set in 18th-century France. Jean-Baptiste Grenouille has a unique talent for discerning the scents and smells that swirl around him, which he uses to create the world’s finest perfumes. Strangely lacking any scent of his own, he becomes obsessed with capturing the irresistible but elusive aroma of young womanhood. As Grenouille’s obsession turns deadly, twelve young girls are found murdered. Panic breaks out as people rush to protect their daughters, while an unrepentant and unrelenting Grenouille still lacks the final ingredient to complete his quest."
