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.

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.

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

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.

In staying together as their world evaporates into darkness and silence, they are displaying what anyone in love would recognize as quiet heroism - and perfect sense.

Satisfyingly ambiguous and starkly tactile in its inquiry into where sensation ends and identity begins, David Mackenzie's rampaging-virus movie doesn't dodge genre potholes so much as it stays off that road entirely.

You've got to make room in your heart for a film in which the world ends with neither a bang nor a whimper but a cuddle.

Frustrating at times, possibly too insistent when it comes to screen poetry, but the concept is intriguing, offering enough scenes of oddity and distress to hold attention and occasionally raise anxiety levels.

Engrossing before packing a staggering emotional wallop as its full implications are revealed.

One thinks inevitably of Camus's La peste.

British director David Mackenzie makes good use of an obviously limited budget, with the apocalypse neatly suggested by just a few litter-strewn Glasgow streets patrolled by men in respirator masks.

This is a frightening and tender sci-fi, shot very flat and unhysterical, full of eccentric detail (the need to make more entertaining food after everyone loses their sense of taste) and always an air of regret spilling out at the edges.

Although watchable, the only thing that succeeds is Mackenzie triggering our deepest, darkest fears of complete sensory malfunction ...
