Women! What could you say? Who made them? God must have been a fucking genius. Hair … they say the hair is everything, you know. Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls … just wanted to go to sleep forever? Or lips … and when they touched, yours were like… that first swallow of wine … after you just crossed the desert. Tits. Hoo-ah! Big ones, little ones, nipples staring right out at you, like secret searchlights. Mmm. Legs. I don’t care if they’re Greek columns … or secondhand Steinways. What’s between them… passport to heaven. I need a drink. Yes, Mr. Simms, there is only two syllables in this whole wide world worth hearing: pussy. Hah! Are you listening to me, son? I’m giving you pearls here.

    Scent of a Woman

    Scent of a Woman is a 1992 American drama film directed by Martin Brest that tells the story of a preparatory school student who takes a job as an assistant to an irascible, blind, medically retired Army officer. It stars Al Pacino, Chris O’Donnell, James Rebhorn, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Gabrielle Anwar. It is a remake of Dino Risi’s 1974 Italian film Profumo di donna.

    The film was adapted by Bo Goldman from the novel Il buio e il miele (Italian: Darkness and Honey) by Giovanni Arpino and from the 1974 screenplay by Ruggero Maccari and Dino Risi. Goldman originally titled his adaptation “Stench of a Woman”, which was met by resistance from the studio. It was directed by Martin Brest.

    Pacino won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance and the film was nominated for Best Director, Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

    The film won three major awards at the Golden Globe Awards: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor and Best Motion Picture – Drama.

    The film was shot primarily around New York state. Portions of the movie were filmed on location at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey; at the Emma Willard School, an all-girls school in Troy, New York; and at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York City.
