Life is an intense struggle of discovering the depths of one’s identity, and often this discovery is only made when all of life’s pieces come together. David Fincher’s movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button delves into this idea of self-discovery and its relation to time. When Daisy reflects on her life through Benjamin’s perspective, experiencing his emotions, encounters, and perception of the world, Fincher suggests that time is of the essence and only when it has run out will one truly understand how valuable life is: how the people shape who we are and how the struggles we face build our character. The acceptance that life only lasts so long is a theme addressed throughout the film; specifically, Fincher’s placement of Benjamin in a nursing home from a very young age developed Benjamin’s understanding that life should be lived to the fullest extent as he realizes just how temporary it is. Living in a nursing home meant that he was often presented with the reality of death, and to him, “mortality was a common visitor.” This acceptance allowed him to “never [be] afraid of death.” Fincher’s choice of soft, instrumental, background music coupled with silence in the initial scenes of the nursing home suggests how the death of Benjamin’s loved ones provides him time for reflection; he begins to understand that he must experience as much as possible before his own time is over.
