Best Romantic Movie Ever!

I've just finished watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button starred by Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. At first I don't really pay much attention while watching the movie because I was so busy attending to some other things to do, also because the first part of the movie is quite boring to watch. The story begins with Daisy's daughter read to her dying mother the diary of Benjamin. Her mother had wanted her to read the diary (spoiler alert!) to reveal that she is actually Benjamin's daughter. Starting with Benjamin's mother died giving birth to him at the end of the first world war, his father put him away at a retirement house full with old people and taken care by black couple, then he met Daisy the love of his life and he do sailing during the second world war. As the movie focused more on the relationship between both Benjamin and Daisy when they started living together, then the story became more excited.
What really keeps me watching the movie is the physical changes that Benjamin went through. Though his physical becoming younger, his mental state grew normally. And that concerned him when Daisy gave birth to his daughter. He left her and she married another man which his daughter thought is her real father. However towards the end of the movie, Daisy took care of the backward-aging Benjamin. He started to develop dementia, forgot how to walk and talk. The most heartfelt moment in the film is when Daisy cradles the baby Benjamin and said "And in the spring 2003, he looked at me. And I knew that he knew who I was. And then he closed his eyes and go to sleep". Then the baby closed his eyes and he died. It really touched my heart. Best romantic movie (ever!)
