Tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.
A David Fincher film that's quite unlike any other David Fincher film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button marks the esteemed filmmaker's first foray into a genre that's very different compared to his usuals, is a fascinating portrait of life seen from a different perspective, and even though it may not be as amazing as Fincher's best works, it's certainly his most distinct film to date.
Inspired from F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story of the same name, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button tells the life story of its titular character, who was born with all the characteristics of an old man but starts getting younger in appearance as the years pass by. The film covers his adventures & experiences as…
It's like Forrest Gump except not good.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a beautiful picture book devoid of any conflict or character development.
Fitzgerald’s story is an odd beast. It is an exploration of mortality and the shortcomings of being human and how we deal with those. It uses an interesting narrative structure to tell its story, giving shape to a very interesting protagonist. These themes are often dealt with in literature and here, as is often the case, so much gets lost in the translation to film.
Fincher’s film certainly holds all his trademark qualities. It is impeccably shot, with great attention to detail and a confident approach to the material. The visual and make up effects are great and everything is doused in…
ok i didn't finish this its 3 hours long and the tiny old man frightened me
The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button is a remarkable film and an epic piece of storytelling. Unfortunately because David Fincher's films over the last twenty years have been so well received both critically and commercially, this film often gets overlooked. Up against the likes of Se7en, The Social Network, Fight Club, and Zodiac, it may well be lesser Fincher, but it's still a terrific achievement.
F Scott Fitzgerald wrote the short story which this film is based upon. It took many years of legal wrangling before David Fincher managed to gain the rights to this film and he didn't do things by half when it came to making it. A huge budget, a stellar cast, and some of the most…

I don't know what it was about this film that hit me so hard, but once the credits started rolling, I was bawling my eyes out. There's something about this film that is just special, and I can't put my finger on what it is. All I can say is that you should see it for yourself and see if the journey it takes you on does the same thing to you as it did to me.
ظلام دامس ، لا تسمع صوتاً سوى صوت البيت يتنفس الستائر تتحرك نور المدفأة يملىء المنزل ، منزل القاسم المشترك فيه هو الموت. فقط هم يسألون عن الطقس ودرجة حرارة الماء عند الاستحمام ، مسن يدخل وآخر يغادر ، روتين واحد ولاشيء يكسر ذلك الروتين إلا عندما ظهر ذلك الطفل المسن أمام عتبة
دار الرعاية ، هو رضيع ولكن تملئه التجاعيد ، هو رضيع ولكن مفاصله تتألم كمسنٍ يحتضر ، لتوه دخل الحياة ولكن منظره يوحي بأنه من المغادرين
الناس لا يفهمون كم هو مختلف.

This movie's awful. It's like somebody stuck a bunch of hollywood cliches together to make something that's shiny on the surface, but has absolutely no substance. We don't get romance; we get a montage of hackneyed couple scenes set to some romantic music. We don't get adventure; we get Brad Pitt hanging out with some Indan guys set to some adventure music. And we're supposed to believe he's on some sort of spiritual quest why? Because he's wearing a bandana? The whole movie's like this: using cliches as a kind of shorthand for an actual story. Awful!
It drags it's emotional potency across too long a runtime, but The Curious Case of Benjamin Button hits the right chords at the right moments, creating a worthwhile fantasy epic.
At the end of watching this, I actually liked this a lot more than I thought I would. The story is quite a challenge on paper but I think Eric Roth handled it fantastically well. David Fincher once again shows an incredible amount of attention to detail like the best directors do. And what is a Fincher film if it didn't have a wonderful score and beautiful cinematography? This might not be one of his greatest works but it is really impressive that Fincher could turn from his usual dark, violent films to making a subdued and delicate story of someone's entire life and does an amazing job at it.
