Join us for afternoon tea with sweet treats from Martineaus Patisserie (while stocks last) at 3:30 pm for a sneak peek of this cinematic journey into some fragrant French frippery!
Perfumes is a classic odd-couple story about two people whose temperaments are poles apart; and yet, opposites attract. This personality clash comedy delivers a winning formula of social observation, character drama and empathy.
Anne Walberg (Devos) was once the star of her industry – a perfumer whose ability to produce enticing new fragrances was second to none and which saw her rise through a competitive landscape. She remains in demand, but her intemperate behaviour has made her difficult. However, striking up an unlikely friendship with her equally troubled new driver, Anne sees a way to return to the top, which might offer a solution to both their problems.
Grégory Magne’s intelligent drama is a visual and sophisticated treat. A breath of fresh – albeit scented – air.
