The Five Senses (1999)

Film details


Drama. As the title suggests, each of the five senses plays a part in an episodic story in which the protagonists are not fated to meet, but are looking for love in one way or another. In each story one particular sense plays a major part: for example, the characters include a massage therapist, a house-cleaner who has an over-developed sense of smell, and a professional cakemaker who unfortunately has no sense of taste!
