From the director of Beverly Hills Cop
Hoping to earn extra money over the thanksgiving weekend, charlie simms agrees to look after blind, retired lieutenant colonel frank slade. But charlie is in for even more surprises when slade takes off for a wild weekend in new york city that will change the lives of both men forever.

"...a great performance from Pacino  Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"There are moments of pure maghic in (Pacino's) performance.  Jack Matthews, New York Newsday

Editor's Note
Chris O'Donnell stars as Charlie Simms, a young and innocent scholarship student at an exclusive prep school in New Hampshire who agrees to look after Lt. Col. Frank Slade (Al Pacino), a blind retired army officer, to earn extra money over the Thanksgiving holiday. Frank is a cantankerous and cynical bully who completely suprises Charlie with his plans for their weekend. He has bought them tickets to New York, booked a suite at the Waldorf, rented a limousine, and has big plans for a wild weekend in the Big Apple. Before Charlie realizes what he has gotten into, he is accompanying the colonel around Manhattan as they begin their wild and eye-opening adventures that include a fast-paced test drive in a Ferrari and a tango with a beautiful woman (Gabrielle Anwar). Frank's passion is women; he waxes lyrically on their bodies, scent, and sensuality, and gradually Charlie becomes aware of the sentimental romantic buried deep within the lonely man's heart. Charlie and Frank's growing relationship is the core of the film; Frank teaches Charlie how to see, and Charlie teaches Frank how to feel in this heart-wrenching and heartwarming comedy. Al Pacino is simply stunning as Frank Slade, relying on his vocal power and strong physicality to carry across a complex range of emotions. He is both intolerable and completely lovable in this Oscar-winning role of a lifetime.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"Al Pacino pulls out the heavy acting artillery....He's astoundingly good..." 01/07/1993 p.50

USA Today
"...[The film] gives Al Pacino a role that's a perfect fit....Pacino's most flamboyant performance yet..." -- 3 out of 4 stars 12/23/1992 p.1D

Chicago Sun-Times
"...[Featuring] Al Pacino in one of his best and riskiest performances..." 12/23/1992 p.37

Newsday 9 of 10
Scent Of A Woman is a rarity, a big-budget movie made with love... Brest sets his scenes up generously, letting things play in depth, and Goldman's dialogue is so forceful that it makes one ashamed of the usual crude shorthand that passes for screenwriting. - David Denby

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
An amazing film. Intelligently written and movingly told. This is one of Al Pacino's best and riskiest performances. - Roger Ebert

Entertainment Today 8 of 10
Scent is a portrait of a man in great emotional stress...he's often hilariously funny, but he is also loud, rude, foul-mouthed, sexist, demanding and generally disagreeable...and this is just when saying "hello." - Tim Cogshell
