Scent of a Woman Reviews:

Why is Pacino such a beast acting? I'll say you why. His passion. Passion that overwhelms all surrounding him. His voice begins roaring and he forgets that he is Al Pacino. He suddenly becomes his character, he stops seeing around him and he is actually a prisoner in his role.The film is about Pacino. His acting is grand, superb, majestic, heart-wrenching, deep, emotional, so forth. His portrayal of a blind boy dangling in the rope of his life, is not only credible but immensely touching. We see directly, through his crystalline performance all of the pain that griefs on his character. Any another actor would have given a corny, over the top performance. Pacino is the Ace.Chris O' Donnell gives also a wonderful performance, shy and unsure will begin to understand Colonel Frank Slade in a short trip that will change their future lives. This film is not Hollywood Rubish. Martin Brest directs a film that hits no cheap feelings and floods on nice emotions that instantly contact the viewer. You have to be rock solid to not be touched.A masterpiece, one of the greatest studies on man's desperation, helped by unbelievable performances and and a stirring, poignant script, with no wasted lines. You will raise goosebumps with scenes like the tango scene, you will laugh, you will cry, you will feel empathy, sorrow, anger. Isn't this film the Holy Grail of Emotions.Don't miss it. One of a kind.


One of the most overall pleasing films I've seen, Scent of a Girl wins on all levels--emotional and intellectual. Of course the basic reason it succeeds is Al Pacino, whose Oscar was well-deserved, needless to say. Chris O'Donnell doesn't overplay his part, and in doing so is realistic and natural. The tango scene, the Ferrari scene, the pseudo-courtroom stage are excellent. Pacino is wholly believable, and although at first he seems overly gruff and nasty, we grow to sympathize with him--especially when that twerp Randy insults him cutthroat-style at Thanksgiving. It's obvious that while Slade acts like he doesn't care, his repetitious "hoo-ha" response makes it obvious he does. My favourite line comes during the Ferrari stage (I was laughing so difficult when the cop left, failing to realize Slade is blind.) As Slade careens down the road at 70 mph, Charlie yells, "You're going to receive us killed!" Slade answers, "Can you blame me? I'm blind!" On that note, Pacino succeeds marvellously in portraying a blind man. We never doubt for a second that he does, in fact, live in total darkness. Yet others, like the cop, probably the spectators in the restaurant in the tango scene, don't realize it. Ironically enough, Slade acts as though he doesn't wish to be treated as the proverbial blind boy who needs a cane and a guiding arm. However, in the final scene, he emerges with a never-before-seen pair of dark glasses (after which follows the charismatic speech.) I wonder, was this to throw them off guard??This film is a modern classic. Some search it too long, but I enjoyed each minute and didn't acutely notice the 2 1/2 hrs gone by. A unbelievable movie that I suggest to all.


The Scent of a Girl is the type of movie that many would think belongs to a bygone era. While it is frank and contemporary without sugar coating it illustrates the value of hero over glitz and how tiny acts can have long lasting consequences.The movie pits two characters who are diametrical opposites. Al Pacino plays the globe weary retired Units Lt. Colonel who through a stupid accident looses his sight and his method of life. Chris Donnelly is a young prep school child on a scholarship whose method of life may be coming to an end owing to the acts of richer children at the exclusive prep school who pull a stupid stunt.The blind Lt. Colonel needs an escort so that he can go to NYC and have a rip roaring time before he makes a fateful decision. The terrible preppy needs to earn a several bucks to travel and is in desperate need of some tip on how to receive through his crisis at school.The interplay between the two characters is mind boggling. It is more riveting than the greatest Grisham novel.Both characters are asked to create life and death decisions that call for them to reach deep into their inner core. The right decision is unhappily the tougher decision to make.Two terrific scenes that are not to be missed. The first is in the Fresh York ballroom where the blind Lt. Colonel teaches the actress Miss Anwar to dance the tango. It is so smooth and dramatic that even a couch potato is tempted to reach for the Yellow Pages in find of dance lessons. The second and most profound is the speech that Al Pacino makes in defense of Chris Donnelly at the prep school disciplinary hearing. It has to go down as one of the nice orations of all times.The Scent of a Girl is very satisfying on many levels. The hero development is superb, dialogue terrific, glamorous territories and a storyline line that requires the characters to present themselves to be the folks they really are. The movie has a lot of funny lines and nice drama. This movie is almost a 10 out of 10.
