Tom Tykwer offers an odd-smelling twist on the Christ-figure.

Quote: >>Ecce homo is the Latin Vulgate's translation of the Greek eido ho anthropos, which is what Pilate says when he presents the scourged, thorn-crowned Jesus to the crowd in John 19.5. The term has come to refer to any artistic work that depicts Jesus in a crown of thorns, but one of the more famous versions of this scene is Antonio Ciseri's Ecce Homo! We look from behind as Pilate presents Jesus to the torture-seeking crowds. This is the scene Tom Tykwer echoes as he introduces us to the murderous protagonist, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, in his latest film Perfume: The Story of a Murderer.<<
