This is not to say that "Perfect Sense" has no charm because it does. It's just that it's hard to make perfect sense of what director David MacKenzie had in mind.

A love story that never is never corny or predictable. [Full review in Spanish]

Ewan McGregor and Eva Green are excellent.

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.

A seriously bleak little movie...

It's hard to grab hold of this piece, difficult to grasp on what it is exactly the director and the writer are trying to say, and while plenty of individual moments border on sensational on the whole this one left me scratching my head.

The problem with Perfect Sense is its inability to be effective as either a character-based love story or something larger and more bold.

February 6, 2012
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.

February 4, 2012
A deeply spiritual love story that challenges us to be fully alive to the report of our senses and to live in the present moment which will never appear again.

Ultimately too silly to truly captivate.

February 3, 2012
A strong candidate for the most nauseating film of the year, in every sense.
February 3, 2012
People around the world progressively lose their senses of smell, taste, hearing and, finally, sight. Too bad the filmmakers never seem to have had a sense of humor in the first place.

Visually glassy and smooth, Perfect Sense values the dynamic mood of each scene without being overly stylized.

February 2, 2012
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.
