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◆
