This review is from: The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button [DVD]  (DVD)
This is one of the most moving and engaging films I have ever watched, a film that can make you look at your own life, and appreciate it for it's pain as well as it's pleasure.
It's not an easy film to get into, the opening sections are a little slow (and with so many modern films the dialogue sometimes buried) but it's worth sticking with it to follow Benjamin's life lived backwards. That premise seems to be a problem for some, there is an explanation of sorts in the film - this clock running backwards - but actually IT DOESN'T MATTER WHY HE IS LIKE THAT! It is a dramatic device which allows the story to take a different perspective on life, death and and all that happens in between. I found that enthralling, and the central love story captivating, the whole thing ultimately immensely moving.
An outstanding film.
