Fight Club by David Fincher

I recently watched this movie (yesterday) and I’m still shocked by the incredible plot !

Don’t worry I’ll not spoil the story but I’ll try to explain in the better way…

The narrator and main character (Edward Norton) is a man who live alone, sleep alone in spite of his numerous insomnia, who work alone, eat alone just like a lot of people in the world. After participating in several anonymous meeting to help peolple who suffre from a cancer, a tuberculosis or others serious diseases, he finally meets Tyler (Brad Pitt): a handsome man, clever, beautiful, nonconformist and rebel. Thanks to him he will learn to live instead of just exist as a pawn of the society. They will creat the « Fitgh Club » an illegal club of boxing.

But at a moment, this odd association will turn into a kind of terrorist activities…

Until which point this story will ended ?

Suspense…

I really advise you to watch this movie, the film technics are just incredibly amazing and the actors play in a way I never seen before. David Fincher is definitly a God of cinema for my opinion !

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I read this novel in original version. It’s very interesting to read in english and I advise you to do it. First because you understand much more than you can think and secondly because you learn other grammatical structure or words and it’s very enriching.

 

This is the story of Benjamin Button who was born old. Instead of growing old with the time he rejuvenizes. So it’s difficult for him to have a normal life with friends of his age or love story with a younger girl than him. He is ahead of his age and he doesn’t have the same ideas than his close friends. This story is very strange because when he is a young boy, he looks like a old one and he has the attitude of an adult and when he become an adult, he looks more and more young and he is also younger in his mind. It’s very paradoxal !

So I advise you to read it and also to watch the adaptation of David Fincher with (the wonderful) Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. It’s a good movie to question ourselves about the time which spend very fast and our evolution through time.
