A hit at Sundance '11 and winner of the Ediburgh Film Festival's prize for Best New British Feature, the amazing genre creation directed by David Mackenzie stars Eva Green and Ewan McGregor as witnesses to the end of the world-- strangers who form a desperate romantic connection in the face of an apocalyptic epidemic of sensory loss. -- (C) IFC

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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.
Sadly, even aficionados of the Cinema of Extinction may make "Perfect Sense" an Omega choice.
This film from David Mackenzie is such a curiously inert experience that never satisfies as a romance, a sci-fi drama or as a social parable.
Each deprivation is preceded by a flurry of emotion that leads to the film's most vivid sequences.
There is a low key element to this narrative much like what CHILDREN OF MEN offered, however this is not nearly as successful as Alfonso Cuarón's brilliant feature.
Audience Reviews for Perfect Sense
- Michael: Fat and flour!
- Michael: I need you to come back to me.
- Michael: Life goes on.
- Susan: Then there's the other movement... farmers going out to milk their cows... soldiers reporting for duty. Those who believe that life will go on somehow... or just don't know what else to do. People prepare for the worst... but hope for the best. They concentrate on the things that are important to them. All the things beyond fat and flour.
- Michael: I think it's okay to panic now.
- Michael: What do you do... when you're not eating?
