It cost me two night's time to watch the film < Scent of A Woman>, I've heard of it long long ago, and expected a Romantic story, but actually it's not so romantic as its name shows. Although there is music, appreciation between strangers, Tango, it mainly tells the story of two men, about principle and character, not love.

The obvious hero is Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade, who is a retired Colonel, became blind in a accident. At the very beginning he seems to be very tough, but actually he is believable and has a kind heart. He has a very special ability, that is to tell women by inhale their scents, he can know their looks and their feelings by his nose. He was taken care of by his niece, who happened to go out for thanks giving, so their has to hire a nurse to look after him. And Charlie Simms, our actual hero, for need of money, become Colonel Slade's attender.

Charlie is a Boston prep school stuent, who is very young, and very afraid of the colonel, he is somewhat timid at the very beginning. His fellow students played a prank on the headmaster, Charlie and George, one of the other guy, happened to be here when the three boys prepared the prank. But they decided to protect their friends and not to tell the truth, because if they tell, their friends would get severely punishment.

However, it's always not so easy to insist on one's principle, Charlie and George were questioned by the headmaster, and cornered by him at the same time. The headmaster said that if they stick to their decision, they would get expelled. The headmaster said that after thanksgiving, he would hold a public hearing, on which occasion they'd better tell the truth. George asked his rich father for help, Charlie, who were told early by the Colonel he might end miserably if he persist, still keep the secret. 

Sometimes it's just so hard to do the right things, it's hard still to tell whether your choice is right or wrong. Someone you respected might tell you to give in, and what's more, they may stand on your way, if you don't give up your principle, then you are done. Yes, you are a good student, poor but smart, might have a very promising future, might be admitted by famous universities, but if you don't follow the voice from above, you can't go that far anymore, you might end up be a salesman in convience stores. So what can you do? Follow the voice of the power or your soul? Selling your friends or kill your future? The situation is terrible, but you have no way to run away, all you can do is face the challenge and make a decision.

Altough Charlie knows about all the results he might get, he didn't give in, he is so brave, Luckily at the same time, he has the support from his indid friend, Colonel Slade, who helped him to go through his crossroad be more scared than hurt. In my point of view, this story tells about the scent of  soul from a right-minded man rather than the scent of a woman.

If time permits, I want to watch this film again, fluently, for some reason the film I watched is so jammed, it almost drive me crazy, I should have give up if the film was not so good.
