As a director known for his best works such as “Se7en” (1995), “Fight Club” (1999) and “Zodiac” (2007), David Fincher is considered a specialist filmmaker for the psychological thriller genre.

However, as a senior filmmaker, people rarely talk about his phenomenal romantic drama, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (2008). The film is adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story of the same name written in 1922.

The Adventures of Benjamin Button who was born with a rare physical condition

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” tells the story of a child who is dumped by his father at a local nursing home because of his strange physical condition. The child was born with wrinkled skin, brittle bones and cataracts, just like an old man. The child is named Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt).

At the nursing home, Benjamin Button is cared for by Queenie (Taraji P. Henson) who is the caretaker of the orphanage. At the nursing home, Queenie realized that Benjamin Button had a rare physical condition in which when other people got older, Benjamin Button physically looked younger and more handsome.

Growing up in a nursing home, Benjamin Button meets Daisy (Cate Blanchett), who later becomes his best friend and soulmate.

A few years later, Benjamin Button grew up with a more youthful physique and worked on the New Orleans docks. While his ideal woman, Daisy has grown into a professional dancer in New York. It was while working on the ship that Benjamin Button's adventure in finding the meaning of love, friendship and life began.

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is one of the best drama films by David Fincher with a fairly complex story, idiosyncratic characters, and full of the true meaning of love and life.

Although Benjamin Button's unique story is written by classic writers F. Scott Fitzgerald, David Fincher and Eric Roth as screenwriters, this film manages to bring the story of this romantic drama to life through cinema.

David Fincher as director managed to direct this film with great feeling and attention to detail and tempo. Then in the script writing department, Eric Roth, who was previously also involved in writing the script for "Forrest Gump" (1994) also succeeded in converting the substance of the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald into film format.

Flashback Plot

Like David Fincher's previous works, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" has a unique plot. In the film, the plot is made back and forth. This flashback plot is told through Benjamin Button's daily journal which was read by Caroline, daughter of Daisy. So, the point of view of this film is not only from Benjamin Button, but also dominated by Daisy's point of view.

But it seems that this film is a type of film that is not suitable to be enjoyed when the body is tired. This is because this film has a duration of 2 hours 46 minutes, and has a fairly slow plot.

Although it seems slow, since "Forrest Gump" it feels like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" has become a film that is able to build a story slowly in such a sweet and light way, and manages to tell the ups and downs of the main character's life journey.

Realistic Visuals

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" can also be considered quite successful because of its technical achievements. Throughout the film, we will be treated to charming scenes with beautiful visual compositions typical of David Fincher. Of course, supported by the arrangement of the city set, which is quite convincing that the story takes place in the era of World War I to II.

Another aspect that deserves appreciation from this film is the makeup. The makeup department was able to visualize the face of young Benjamin Button filled with wrinkles without losing the character of Brad Pitt's face as the actor. The process of changing Benjamin Button who is getting younger from time to time is also visually very convincing. Not surprisingly, this film won the Academy Awards for Best Production Design.

Overall, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is a drama film that must be watched for fans of David Fincher or Brad Pitt. Much can be learned from Benjamin Button's character.

Benjamin Button's journey reminds us that the best thing we can do is to live life as best we can as a gift and always be grateful for the people we meet along our journey of life.
