Fifth about The Seventh

Perfect Sense (2011)

Perfect Sense: it is a sad and distressing love story told by David Mackenzie in this low-key sci-fi world, where a pandemic makes people slowly lose their (literal) senses. It is a thoughtful, contemplative film, that moves slowly at times, but packs an emotional punch when all is said and done.  Like good science-fiction, the film has a good deal to say about mankind and the state of the world. It helps that its two leads are two impossibly beautiful people (Eva Green and Ewan McGregor) and that they both bring the charm and the emotional depth asked by the story. Cinematographer Giles Nuttgens captures the slowly deteriorating world with a dreamy, soft quality. Composer Max Richter contributes with a beautiful, eerie, and a bit sparse, musical score.
