My Curious Review


The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button


The overall Production was fantastic,specially the prosthetic ,the Art team did a good job in bringing the old scenes into reality.The costumes used in the movie were all elegant.
The story was unbelievable but it`s worth watching for.
It`s full of detail.Though it`s really long it`s enjoying and the humor is captivating.
The places are beautiful and lovely.
Music was lonely but it fits the story.
Special Effects are fantastic,not so expected in this kind of movie.
And the main characters are really great,They`ve been performing well since the beginning.
This is a masterpiece.

SYNOPSIS:
“I was born under unusual circumstances.”
And so begins “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: A man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. From New Orleans at the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, on a journey as unusual as any man’s life can be, the film tells the grand tale of a not so ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds and loses, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.
