A virus is spreading. People around the world are being infected. First the grief, then smell is gone. As loss of one sense leads to another, people are stripped of the lives that they once knew. Chaos ensues whilst a young couple try to begin a relationship.

Michael (Ewan McGregor, Star Wars, Shallow Grave) is a chef and Susan, (Eva Green, Casino Royale, Camelot) a scientist, their budding relationship must evolve around the virus before it takes them and everyone else over.

Ewan McGregor leads a talented cast including his Trainspotting co-star Ewen Bremner, Denis Lawson (Bleak House) and Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) in a daring and inventive sci-fi thriller for our modern times.

 Unusual; intelligent; moving

This is an engrossing film. The mysterious virus is a metaphor that allows the film to explore what it means to be human in a world in which we lose everything - except the ability to be human. Lovely acting; a powerful story told through the growing love between two people. Not your average sort of SF film, much better.

 Touching and well crafted, but predictable

Acted superbly, and played from the view of a "survivor" telling the story to future generations, "Perfect Sense" gives us the love story of two people learning to feel in a world where the human senses are disappearing one by one.

Edinburgh, present day. The two characters start the movie alone, unfeeling and emotionally distant from the world, simply falling into their jobs, each with their own heavy emotional baggage, leaving them excuse to avoid intimacy.
Society is unaware that a virus is spreading, taking human senses away one by one, the only sign of each attack coming is an overwhelming emotion. Circumstances bring together our two main characters, and they start to feel love again, but will the constantly changing balance of our senses shake the relationship loose?

While there are multiple scenarios and plot turns which fail to sizzle due to being over-used in other movies, the film contains a real sense of tenderness, in spite of having bleached tones, and quite unpleasant behaviour at times - this is massively helped by a beautiful score which is worth buying alongside the film.

The movie is a great romantic drama (albeit predictable), and is worth watching for a night in, but may just be a tad too serious for some romance lovers.
