When I read the synopsis for this movie, I was expecting something more like the movie "Contagion". It was nothing like that. This would be an extremely simple way of trying to describe it. This was more than just entertainment. It was a real eye-opener to me.
"Perfect Sense' tells the story of regular and flawed individuals, a chef and a doctor, on a pre-apocalyptic scenario. This is the story of two characters who seem to be lost and lonely, until they find each other...ironically, just when the world seems to be falling apart.
Didn't know what to say or think right after I finished watching this movie.It certainly is a great movie but it is kind of hard to explain how you can feel about it. A little slow in the very beginning, the movie soon starts involving us in the story. I watched it with my wife and she would drive me crazy while she was trying to predict what sense they would lose next or what emotion they would experience before every event. I just loved the fact they felt some kind of bliss before losing their sight. It kinda reminded me of a very sick person who feels miraculously better before dying. Nothing else seems to matter in that moment. Susan's voice narrating the final scene was just so beautiful it pulled some tears from my eyes.
I have read many reviews on this movie and it seems that it has impacted people on different levels. All I can say is that this movie sure got me thinking about the simple things of life I normally take for granted and I just thanked God a lot for having all my senses" working" and started respecting, even more, people who are deprived of any of their senses and have to move on, despite the difficulties.
