早前幫某位同事買老翻(呵呵!!), 佢個list入邊有呢一齣《奇幻逆緣》, 本來就想話寄畀佢之前自己頭頭拆開嚟睇, 不過後來都係去咗戲院睇, 166分鐘都算值回票價囉.. 個故事好簡單不過就幾唔錯, 就係話主角逆生長, 一出世係個80歲老人, 但係後來就越活就越後生, 到最後變成嬰兒一個「老死」而去..
成齣戲其實都幾緩慢, 但係呢近三小時嘅戲感覺又冇咁長嘅.. 導演好細膩咁描畫主角嘅一生, 用第三者敘述交替帶出主角故事.. 我覺得齣係有點偏向文藝, 但係又唔係悶嗰挺, Pitt生到最後個後生look真係令人嘩然架(60歲人25歲外表, 當然唔係話倫伯啦, 呵呵!!).. 我都幾enjoy架其實, 值得一睇喎.. i helped a friend to buy some pi**ted DVDs last week and from her list i saw this "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", wanted to secretly borrow the DVD from her and watch it myself before sending over to her, but end up watching this in the cinema instead, the 166 minutes long movie anyway did worth the money back.. simple storyline but i personally think it's a good one, telling the story of a reverse-aging guy, born as a 80 year-old but as he grows "older" he actually becomes "younger", and end up passing away as a baby in his beloved embrace..
it was actually quite a slow movie, near 3-hour long but didn't feel that long actually.. the director has been quite detailed in plotting the life of Benjamin, using a third person to tell the story interchangingly.. a bit inclined to artistic movie (or whatever you call that) but certainly not the boring type, Mr Pitt was undoubtedly wow-able with his younger look when he was older in the movie (i mean imagine a 60 year-old man with a 25 year-old outlook).. i actually enjoyed the movie very much, it's worth a watch i would say..
