New Perfect Sense trailer shows love can conquer all things (except possibly a global pandemic)
Director David Mackenzie's PERFECT SENSE will undoubtedly be compared to a certain degree to Steven Soderbergh's excellent CONTAGION (even though a more appropriate comparison might with Lars Von Trier's MELANCHOLIA), but its focus on the blossoming love affair between two people - played by Ewan McGregor and Eva Green - will likely give it an entirely different sort of emotional heft (I hear it's been sending people out of screenings in tears).
This new trailer provided by Empire is not as interesting as the first one that hit way back in January, but its display of chemistry between the film's two leads is effective. What do you guys think?
PERFECT SENSE will be released on October 7th in the UK. A North American release has not yet been set.
Synopsis: The story of two people who begin to fall in love as the world begins to fall apart. Susan is a scientist. Michael is a chef. He takes a break from the kitchen heat in the alleyway below her apartment; she smokes a cigarette at the window above. He calls up for a light – the first spark in their passionate affair. But the world is about to change dramatically. As love turns Susan and Michael’s lives upside down, people across the globe begin to experience strange symptoms, which first affect the emotions then the senses, one by one. Everything changes. But people laugh, they cry, they eat and drink, they go about their daily business. They adapt, they change, they cope, they live and they love – because life must go on. And so it does.
