Benjamin Button

Obwohl ich in der letzten Zeit wieder öfter im Kino war, habe ich selten hier dazu etwas geschrieben. Das lag meist daran, dass ich zu faul war oder der Film es nicht wert. Diesmal ist der Film es wert und ich auch nicht faul :)
Gestern war ich in Benjamin Button und es war ein guter, wenn auch trauriger Film. Man kann ihn auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Mit fast 3 Stunden ist er allerdings ziemlich lang, so dass man sich das mit der Spätvorstellung überlegen sollte, falls man nicht erst um 2h morgens zu Hause sein möchte oder noch etwas anderes vorhat :mrgreen:
Fazit: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Benjamin Button

On the day that Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans, elderly Daisy Williams nee Fuller is on her deathbed in a New Orleans hospital. At her side is her adult daughter, Caroline. Daisy asks Caroline to read to her aloud the diary of Daisy’s lifelong friend, Benjamin Button. Benjamin’s diary recounts his entire extraordinary life, the primary unusual aspect of which was his aging backwards, being born an old man who was diagnosed with several aged diseases at birth and thus given little chance of survival, but who does survive and gets younger with time. Abandoned by his biological father, Thomas Button, after Benjamin’s biological mother died in childbirth, Benjamin was raised by Queenie, a black woman and caregiver at a seniors home. Daisy’s grandmother was a resident at that home, which is where she first met Benjamin. Although separated through the years, Daisy and Benjamin remain in contact throughout their lives, reconnecting in their forties when in age they finally match up. Some of the revelations in Benjamin’s diary are difficult for Caroline to read, especially as it relates to the time past this reconnection between Benjamin and Daisy, when Daisy gets older and Benjamin grows younger into his childhood years.
