"Perfume" Leads the 57th Annual German Film Awards Nominations

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer picture


Bernd Eichinger-produced thriller "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" collected eight nominations in total for the event.

Already scored five nominations at this year's Saturn Awards, now it's chance for "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" to strive high in its own homeland as the gothic thriller successfully took most nominations for the 57th annual German Film Awards, colloquially known as the Lolas, set to take place at Palais am Funkturm in Berlin on May 4.

Scooping up eight nods together with prison drama "Four Minutes", the picture delightfully landed slot in top prize of Best Picture and Best Director slot for Tom Tykwer. The rest six nominations it garnered were in rather technical ones namely Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Set Design, Best Costume Design, Best Score, and Best Sound Design.

A big screen adaptation of German writer Patrick Suskind's novel of the same name, "Perfume", set in the eighteenth century Paris, presents a story about Jean-Baptiste Grenouille who develops a superior olfactory sense, which he uses to create the world's finest perfumes. His work, however, takes a dark turn as he tries to capture the irresistible but elusive aroma of young, beautiful virgins.
