The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,' adapted from the 1921s 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. We follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in 1918 to the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual as any man's life can be. Directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson, Tilda Swinton, Jason Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond, Benjamin Button is a grand tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.

班傑明的奇幻旅程。
雖然當初看到故事劇情的簡介後,就知道我一定會很難過。結果呢?哈。我哭了。
早上看完後直接到學校上課,但那種沉重的、發人省思的心情卻依舊重重的沉澱在心中。
這真的是部好片!讓我想了很多,很多。

人生就是旅程,我們見證著時間在自己身上、心上的痕跡,然後,學習成長。

我無法想像當大家一起變老時,自己正好相反的狀況。
不能一起到老,是多麼痛的痛呵。
最讓我感到心疼甚至於掉淚的片段,
是當Benjamin和Daisy有了小孩後,Benjamin決定在女兒(Caroline)五歲時離開。
他摸著Caroline的臉對Daisy說道:「她需要的是個父親,而不是玩伴。」的那刻。
他知道自己無法陪伴她們繼續前進,所以要Daisy去找一個能夠「稱職」的父親/丈夫來陪伴她們。

愛,不是佔有,是希望對方能過的更好...

在他的旅程中,他也看到了許多。
每個人其實都有自己適合的、專屬的舞台與角色。
我想起Benjamin從小就在養老院長大,在他看著人生中生老病死的最後三個階段時,是不是也因而讓他更為豁達?

如同他所說:
Some people, were born to sit by a river. Some get struck by lightning. Some have an ear for music. Some are artists. Some swim. Some know buttons. Some know Shakespeare. Some are mothers.And some people, dance.

You never know what's coming for you.

這正是現在的我所需的。我不知道我,屬於哪一群some...
卻也在他對女兒的明信片中的一段話又感到安心...

For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

我知道人生很短,也很想快點找到自己追尋的終身目標,卻依舊停滯不前。

我也很喜歡他們兩面對著鏡子看著彼此外表年紀來到了「中點」時的那刻,
他說:I wanna remember us just as we are now.

雖然兩個人的起點與終點正好相反,但至少他們遇到了,這中間的那一站,即使馬上便要分道揚鑣。







時間繼續過去。
他,漸漸回到童年;她,漸漸邁入老年。

兩人越離越遠,就如同最初見面時的那一刻。只是,回憶只剩Daisy記得,Benjamin回到青少年,苦惱的對Daisy說道:
「我感到好奇怪,有好多事情,都記不太起來。似乎...我已經活了好久,已經過了一輩子。」
Daisy知道,從此,他們的回憶就由她來負責...

我很喜歡結局的鋪陳,Daisy看著Banjamin回到青年、童年、呀呀學語的階段到成為嬰兒,
而她卻依舊堅定的牽著他的手,和他一起往人生的終點邁進。
然後,他死在她的懷中,重新回到了原點。



那一刻我突然察覺到,能夠白頭到老,是多麼的幸福...
