I'm sorry, unless noted. this is a short-answer literature forum. The movie version of this novel has no category at Gradesaver.

The novel itself, seems to reveal or explain something of the irrationality of human behavior according to its author's beliefs. That being, to the extent that we believe we make most of our decisions about others using reason and conscious choice, the existence of prejudices based on smells perceived unconsciously throws this view into chaos. This kind of foundation-shaking existentialism is a powerful feature of Süskind's work.
