One of my favourite films is Benjamin Button, a movie directed by David Fincher. I’m not a great fan of drama which is based on impossible situations. However I was pleasantly surprised by this thought-provocing film. The main actor is Brad Pitt and the movie is set in New Orleans.

It tells the story of a man who ages in reverse. Physically he is at the age of a grandfather and mentally he is like a baby. He is in love with a ballerina who gets older and older like normal people, on the other hand, he begins to biologically grow younger.

The acting is first-rate. Brad Pitt’s performance as Benjamin Button is totally marvellous. What particularly impressed me about this movie was the stunning visual effects. The plot made me think carefully about my life.

A fantastic movie! Go and see this film, you won’t be disappointed.
