剧情

该片改编自弗朗西斯·斯科特·基·菲茨杰拉德所著同名小说,讲述了一出生便拥有80岁老人形象的本杰明·巴顿,随着岁月的推移逐渐变得年轻,最终回到婴儿形态,并在苍老的恋人黛茜怀中离世的奇异故事。

看点

有人说返老还童是一件美好的事,这部影片却是在讽刺这个说法。

无论是自然生长还是返老还童,人都要经历生老病死,都要有所失去有所成长。

所有的都会逝去,唯一不会改变的是时间,那就让我们继续在时间里相遇吧。

多少人曾经幻想如何才能使时光倒流

多少人曾经渴望自己能够回到年轻力胜的时代

这部影片终于帮助大家实现了这样的幻想

片头就有一位巧匠建造一台

逆时针转动的时钟

寓意着时光倒流
mmexport1617377566682.jpg
但是看完后却忽然发现

似乎返老还童的逆生长

并不如想象中那么美好
mmexport1617377570046.jpg
它甚至不像是一个故事

更像是一篇散文,一首诗

本杰明·巴顿其实就是我们每一个人

从小到大,从老到少

时间在变,容颜在变,唯有爱意不变

唯有每晚入睡前的

晚安,黛西

晚安,本杰明

不曾改变

影片用感性的叙事加以哲学的思辨

一边颂扬着生命的美好

一边展现出对于时光流逝的无奈

让我们试着明白关于“时空与爱”的真谛
