Film Review: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

“Life isn’t measured in minutes, but in moments”

This is a story about a guy, named Benjamin Button, who was born under unusual circumstances. He was born in his eighties and ages backwards. So the older his age, the younger he looks like.
The movie is directed by David Fincher, written by Eric Roth and Robin Swicord and starring Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button, Cate Blanchett as Daisy, with the other good actors and actresses, there are Taraji P. Henson, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas, and Julia Osmond.

The story is a grand-tale of Benjamin Button who is not-so ordinary man with extraordinary life that he discovers along the way. The people, places, the loves he finds, the joys of life, the sadness of death, and the moments he experienced will give us the meaning of human life. Each dialogue is very strong. Every part of the story is delivered well with the mesmerizing performance by the stars.

As a moviegoer, I enjoy the flow of the story so much and how the detail of the scene told the audience that life is about how we learn, experienced from every moments both sadness and happiness will hamper and pass us in every single minutes. I also surprised to the make-up artists that could construct the characters perfectly with the realistic condition. I think five Golden Globe Nominations are reasonable for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” I recommend this movie for the people who still can’t respect their moments they already passed.

I think it's a breathtaking story of not only of a man against the laws of nature but a beautiful parodox of life,.

i love this moment:
Daisy asks Benjamin, "Will you still love me when my skin is old and saggy?"
He replies, "Will you still love me when I have acne, wet the bed and am afraid of what's under the stairs?"
