‘Perfume’ gets coin

World Brief

Helmer Tom Tykwer and producer Bernd Eichinger have received a E2.6 million ($3.4 million) grant from Bavaria for their pic “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer.”

This is in addition to the $2 million from film funding body FFF Bayern and $1.3 million from Bavarian bank funds BBF.

Pic is an adaptation of the 18th-century novel by Patrick Sueskind and is a longtime passion for Eichinger. Tykwer co-wrote the script with Andrew Birkin.
