imagine if the senses went away in a different order? could be a whole other movie!
With a premise similar to Blindness, Perfect Sense is about humanity's senses being extinguished one by one, and as with Blindness, the root cause is never revealed, or else is metaphysical. This is both background and foreground to a romance between the leads, an epidemiologist played by Eva Green and a chef played by Ewan McGregor. The film is a testament to humanity's ability to adapt to these peculiar losses - which individuals have endured, if not entire populations like this - and does its best to take away the audience's ability to perceive these senses as well, through word choice, lyrical montage, and sound design. The crescendo at the end is amazing. A beautiful and appropriately sensual film experience, and aside from equally powerful grace notes, different enough to Blindness to make both watchable days apart without either feeling redundant. A real surprise given the stock DVD cover, which makes it look like a generic thriller.
