    perfume: story of a murder.. very much enjoyed.. the filming style reminded me of the fall. Even though he was the killer i was still on his side… haha that sounded bad

    pan’s labyrinth.. i love the director.. he also directed “the Devil’s backbone” that movie was good.. just scary, dark, evil, sad and good story…lets just say i’ve never watched a sad and scary movie combination before.. i’m glad i watched it with my sister and not alone in my room.
