A summary of the movie ‘a scent of a woman’
Written by: Salma Hassanin

The very first thing that came to my mind once I’ve finished seeing this movie is; pain.
Pain is the only thing that combines all the aspects of the human truth. This movie showed what pain is capable of leading to, in terms of either choosing to ignore it or to deal with it.
Throughout the whole movie, Frank’s wild attitude was nothing but the pure consequences of choosing to ignore his pain. That man was only brave enough to take a walk with the devil himself; he allowed his pain to take control over his emotions and decisions for a decent amount of time. Seeing suicide as the only way out, wasn’t the problem at all. In a matter of fact, for a sane man to believe that life has run out of its service to deliver a new meaning every single day, is a disaster, that’s exactly where things started to go wrong. Frank was not a good person; neither was he a good one, but in reality, as Charlie said; ‘you’re not bad, you’re just in pain’. Frank was nothing but a lonely wise man who had made some very wrong decisions in his past, a man who chose the ill humor as a way of taming the fire that burnt non-stop in his lungs every single day.
As anyone who had seen this movie would be mesmerized by the absolute intelligence of Frank; not a lot of people would notice how rudely this movie has categorized women; showing them only as objectives that do nothing but providing ease for a man with a drunk mind and a cold heart; in the most offensive and shallow ways.
Although Frank was a constantly haunted man by his very dark past; he still managed to see life for what it really is. At the end of the movie; when Frank kind of understood that it is okay to be in pain and that there’s nothing wrong with being a creature with sins written upon his heart; only then he could confess what was truly planted in his made in the military messed up mind, which is that integrity and bravery are any man’s two must have morals.
Bottom line is; as we go through this roller coaster so called life; we will make mistakes, we will make some very bad decision and we might even become some cold souls ourselves; there would never be such thing as a shame of being in pain. Life was never expected, humans were never trustable; but at the beginning of each day; the sun will rise, the shops will open, the ice will melt, the matches will be played, and life won’t wait for anyone.
Life is no judge; it won’t punish and it won’t reward. Only our actions shall determine which paths our lives will end up taking.
