This a review of an unusual movie called Perfect Sense, sort of a personal armageddon in my opinion. The story starts by looking at the lives of two people in particular and the people they interact with. We have the good looking chef who has just gotten out of a relationship and an attractive scientist/doctor who appears to have had a hard time in her last relationship as she confides to her sister. The female scientist/doctor, is at work in a type of hospital when she is called to have a look at a person who is being kept in seclusion until they find out what is wrong with him. He says he can't smell anything but they can find no evidence of this anywhere else at this time. The guy in seclusion is getting very angry.
Susan, the scientist and Michael, the chef, form a relationship and Susan obviously talks about her work with Michael. Michael, whose business and the business of all others who work in the restaurant is to rely on their smell to determine how food is progressing. Suddenly, he and all the others start to lose their sense of smell and they all get very angry. The woman, Susan also loses her sense of smell, as well as all other people who work with her.
This puts a certain amount of strain on the relationship of Susan and Michael but somehow they muddle through and amazingly everybody starts to muddle through because everyone in the world has lost their sense of smell. Things die down in the restaurant - without smell there isn't really any taste and so not many people are coming to the restaurant. Gradually as people get used to no smell, they start to go out and the chefs in the restaurant develop other ways of telling if the food is ready.
This continues with each of the senses disappearing and we see the relationship of Susan and Michael go through ups and downs but love or something like that pulls them through in the end.
