Murder for Scent Returns in Modern Adaptation of PERFUME [Trailer]

By Marina Antunes [11.21.18]

Patrick Süskind's novel "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" has already yielded one excellent adaptation in Tom Tykwer's outstanding movie of the same name but the concept of Süskind's book is being revamped for a new project simply titled "Perfume."

Writer Eva Kranenburg has updated the story to take place in the present and follows a young profiler tracking what appears to be a serial killer responsible for a series of brutal murders. The investigation leads her to a mysterious group formed at a boarding school whose members tried to manipulate people by using human scents.

The six-episode limited series is produced by Constantin Film who previously produced Tykwer's feature film adaptation, and is directed by Philipp Kadelbach who is best known for his TV work, including directing the Emmy award-winning "Generation War."

It's a fantastic premise and the trailer suggests a solid thriller complete with sordid visuals and details.

Perfume will be available on Netflix December 21.

    Thanks for the reminder that I need to read the book. "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" (the movie) was strange and interesting.
