June 19th, 2011   Stef Article, Movies, The Perfect Sense Comments Off

Sci-fi romance Perfect Sense is to be released in UK cinemas by Arrow Films on October 7, following this weekend’s European premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Perfect Sense stars Ewan McGregor, Eva Green (Casino Royale, The Golden Compass, TV series Camelot), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting, Snatch) and Stephen Dillane (44 Inch Chest).

It’s directed by British filmmaker David Mackenzie (Spread, Young Adam, Hallam Foe) and written by Kim Fupz Aakeson (To Love Someone, Pure Hearts),

McGregor plays Michael, head chef at a Glasgow restaurant, and Eva Green is Susan, an epidemiologist who is hearing reports across the world of people inexplicably losing their five senses one by one.

They embark on a sensual adventure that sees them experiencing new and unforeseen depths of feeling and moments of pure connection. But is this because they are falling in love or is it because the world as they know it is falling apart?

Described as “a life-affirming look at what it means to love and be loved in turbulent times”, the movie was also screened at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Perfect Sense is produced by Gillian Berrie for Sigma Films and Malte Grunert for Amusementpark Films.

Director David Mackenzie said: “Edinburgh and I go back a long way and all but one of eight short films and seven feature films of mine have received their UK premiere here. The EIFF is a significant part of my education and I am very happy to be back again.”

Mackenzie attended the festival alongside cast members Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Alastair Mackenzie and Denis Lawson, who is McGregor’s uncle.

McGregor told the BBC: “It’s the first time I’ve acted with my uncle. I’ve been directed by him in a play in London and then we did a short film in Edinburgh called Solid Geometry and if he hadn’t been an actor I’m sure I wouldn’t have thought to be one.

“He has inspired me all my life and yet I’ve never acted with him and I was always waiting for something really special to do with him and this came to fruition and I was really really happy to do it.”

Ewan said he was drawn to the script and also wanted to work again with Mackenzie, who directed him in Young Adam.

He said: “I loved the story, I just thought the script was fantastic, a really strong story. It’s an unusual story, a love story set against a very odd backdrop.

“I always felt reading it and certainly playing it that it was a hopeful film in an unusual way.”
