A chef and a scientist fall in love as an epidemic spreads.
" In staying together as their world evaporates into darkness and silence, they are displaying what anyone in love would recognize as quiet heroism - and perfect sense. "
" The film loses its charm with annoying sequences that have a narrator explain to us "The Meaning of it All" and then tell us "What Really Matters" in life: Love. Love. Love. "
" The problem with Perfect Sense is its inability to be effective as either a character-based love story or something larger and more bold. "
" Filmed with the somber pretentiousness of a Babel, the movie never quite converts its premise into something grander (never mind believable). "
" Thrillingly ambitious, ecstatically romantic, utterly unexpected. "
" Sadly, even aficionados of the Cinema of Extinction may make "Perfect Sense" an Omega choice. "
" A solemn sci-fi parable set in present-day Glasgow, whose deepening sense of foreboding is sustained by the enigmatic, pseudo-biblical reflections of an unseen narrator. "
" It's difficult to impart feelings of profound sadness with an image of Ewan McGregor shoving a stick of butter in his mouth. "
" You've got to make room in your heart for a film in which the world ends with neither a bang nor a whimper but a cuddle. "
" An intriguing apocalyptic romance with a multi-purpose title. "
" People around the world progressively lose their senses of smell, taste, hearing and, finally, sight. Too bad the filmmakers never seem to have had a sense of humor in the first place. "
" If you crave action, dialogue, explanations, character revelations and clear plot resolutions, Perfect Sense never lives up to its title. "
" Satisfyingly ambiguous and starkly tactile in its inquiry into where sensation ends and identity begins, David Mackenzie's rampaging-virus movie doesn't dodge genre potholes so much as it stays off that road entirely. "
