filmtrivia (My favorite film performances & movie characters) Jean Baptiste Grenouille: An orphan born with an extreme form of supernatural hyperosmia (an abnormally strong sense of smell), which leads to him becoming a serial killer: portrayed by (Ben Whishaw) in the 2006 film (Perfume The Story Of A Murderer)
Directed by (Tom Tykwer)◆ Tykwer wanted someone for the role who was completely unknown. He went to see (Ben Whishaw) perform as Hamlet in Trevor Nunn's production of the play. Tykwer immediately felt that he had found the actor for the role. An audition followed which convinced the filmmakers of Ben's potential◆ 
Jean Baptiste Grenouille's journey in the film is narrated by @withjohnhurt John Hurt)◆ In the book, Grenouille kills Plum Girl, potrayed by @karolineherfurth Karoline Herfurth) when he is 15, and leaves for Grasse when he's 18◆ In the movie he is already in his early 20s when he does both◆ Also in the book, he stalks Laure Richis, played by @1rachelhurdwood Rachel Hurd-Wood)
for 2 years before killing her because he felt she was too young when he first caught her scent◆ Ben wore his costume continuously for several days at a time, even sleeping in it- as this was a common practice in the period in which the film takes place◆He potrayed Grenouille as if he were autistic◆ He wasn't given any white clothing and wore bluish over-garments throughout most of the film because the filmmakers wanted to depict him as a shadow and a chameleon◆ Producer (Bernd Eichinger) also supported the casting of (Ben Whishaw) describing him as embodying both "the innocent angel and the murderer"◆ Ben had a week of rehearsal with (Dustin Hoffman) and a crash course in perfume-making prior to the start of principal photography. The scenes between the two actors were shot in sequence, allowing them to follow the natural progression of their characters' relationship◆ Every time Jean-Babtiste leaves one of his masters they get killed or executed◆

  •   filmtrivia In the film Grenouille spends a couple of weeks in the cave. In the book he spends 7 years in the cave living in an imaginary purple castle in his head. He eats bugs and berries to survive◆ In the book after leaving the cave his hair had grown to his knees and his beard had grown to his navel◆ Grenouille means frog in French. Frogs hibernate and survive on what they've stored within themselves, much like Grenouille living off his olfactory memories◆ In the book, Grenouille only travels by night through the mountains to completely avoid people◆ In the book he kills 24 girls over the course of two years in Grasse. He is never a caught because he can smell people from yards and miles away and knows which corners to cut so he is never seen◆ He has no odour of his own which is why animals (especially dogs) don't react to him◆ In the book, Grenouille feels no remorse whatsoever for his murders, but he does not murder for the thrill of it; he kills his victims because he needs their scents and can only capture them by killing◆ In the movie he is shown to have feelings when he remembers (Plum Girl) and sheds a tear during the orgy scene. He daydreams about their first encounter and imagines himself kissing her instead of killing her◆ In the novel Laure's father tries to adopt Grenouille after smelling the perfume he made but it is not shown in the film◆ The film is based on the 1985 novel by (Patrick Suskind)◆
    Alvaro Roque (potrays 5 year old Grenouille)◆ Franck Lefeuvre (potrays 12 year old Grenouille)◆ The search to find an actor to play Grenouille took almost a year◆The book was the source of inspiration for the Nirvana song (Scentless Apprentice). Kurt Cobain would always carry the book in his pocket and said he identified with (Jean-Babtiste Grenouille's) alienation◆The beginning of the film is distinctly dark aesthetic due to the lack of adequate lighting during the film's time period. As Grenouille discovers more scents, the color palettes warm and open up. In the scenes where Grenouille goes to Paris for the first time, the filmmakers added more powerful colors in the sets, costumes, props and lighting to represent Grenouille's experience of the new smells◆ 10h
