"Tragedy is easy; Comedy is hard." Those words, paraphrased from the alleged last words of actor Edmund Kean: "dying is easy; comedy is hard" remain true to this day. Our new feature, PERFUMES, vanquishes that hard hurdle.
PERFUMES, a new French comedy, is as light and sweetly charming as its subject. Ann Walberg is a master in fragrance who has fallen from grace amongst the upper echelons of the perfume industry. When she hires a down-on-his-luck chauffeur, the two strike up a friendship, that, not surprisingly, changes both of them. The movie begins streaming today, Friday 3/19. 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. "...refreshing and undeniably original narrative." -Little White Lies
