Nominated for eight categories at the 57th annual German Film Awards, also known as the Lolas, gothic thriller "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" delightfully collected most honors as the prestigious ceremony took place yesterday night, May 4, at Berlin's Palais am Funkturm.
Being triumphant in technical categories, the picture garnered trophies for Best Cinematography also Best Editing as well as Best Set, Costume, and Sound Design. Though so, the movie failed to win helmer Tom Tykwer the Best Director title, which was eventually nabbed by Marcus H. Rosenmueller for "Grave Decisions."
Another major loss "Perfume" had to face was in the competition of top prize Best Film - Lola In Gold for the coveted honor surprisingly went to "Four Minutes", a drama presenting the story of an elderly piano teacher who trains a young convict at a women's penitentiary. The flick itself was awarded Silver Lola instead, alongside "Decisions" which also won the Best Score and Screenplay prizes.
