Scent of a woman is a story between Charles Simms,a poor,virtuous prep school senior and Lt.Colonel Frank Slade,a blind,lonely veteran.
At the beginning of the movie,Charles witnesses a gambade that two of hie friends mocks the headmaster,and the headmaster forces him to tell the peacebreakers.Because Charles refuse to betray his friends,the headmaster decides to hold a school meeting to make Charles tell the truth or Charles would loss the chance to further study after the Thanksgiving weekend.

They learn from each other and Colonel then kown what happened to Charles.Finally,Charles successfully arrest Frank to kill himself.And at the schoolmeeting,Frank show up,bringing a brilliant speech,making Charles eacape to be dismissed,as well as,a no-ending applause.
I was deeply touched by this movie,though it has no convulse scene ,I appreciate it because of something about life it teach us.The movie chose two people with nearly no commons,Charles is young and a little shy,but Frank is blind and bed-tempered.On the other hand,we can say these two guys are alike because they both come to a crossroad of their life.For Charles,to insist his faith or to betray his friends to make himself safe?For Frank,its much more terrible because he is planning to take his own life.Fortunewheel make these two poor guys together.Being a soldier,Frank teaches Charles that it is shameful to betray friends and at the school metting,he emphasize that so nice Charles is and the headmaster is teaching in a woring way,which is really welcomed by the following students.Being a young,friendly boy.Charles make Frank know that life is treasure that one should never give it up.
Two and one-half hour,Scent of a woman teaches us two much,it is really wothy to appreciate.
