The social network by David Fincher( Visual )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and German and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spielfilm um die Gründung des "Social Network" Facebook und dessen Erfinder Mark Zuckerberg. Dabei geht es weniger um ein Ausloten des Phänomens "Facebook" und der Ausstrahlung, die diese Art der virtuellen Selbstdarstellung und Kommunikation auf ihre Benutzer ausübt, als vielmehr um die Aufstiegsgeschichte eines Campus-Außernseiters und seines Start-up-Unternehmens sowie um Illoyalitäten und Skandälchen, mit denen dieser Aufstieg einher ging. Filmisch mitreißend inszeniert, mit hohem Tempo, brillanten Dialogen und guten Darstellern, wird die an sich etwas dünne Geschichte höchst unterhaltsam aufbereitet. [film-dienst]
Der seltsame Fall des Benjamin Button by David Fincher( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im frühen 20. Jahrhundert wird Benjamin Button geboren - als alter Greis. Im Verlauf seines Lebens altert er nicht, sondern wird immer jünger. Als er sich in Daisy verliebt, wird ihr Verhältnis zueinander durch Benjamins Besonderheit auf die Probe gestellt, da sie immer älter, er aber immer jünger wird. - Epische Lebensgeschichte eines Mannes, dessen Alterungsprozess rückwärts abläuft. Die sich aus dieser Situation zwangsläufig ergebenden Konflikte und Situationen sind, wie die eines normalen Lebens auch, urkomisch bis tieftraurig, und regen den Zuschauer gerade wegen ihrer grundsätzlichen Normalität zum Nachdenken an. Die mehr als üppige Verfilmung einer Kurzgeschichte ist solide, bewegend und aufmunternd zugleich, ein echter Fincher-Film eben. (www.moviemaze.de, 18.5.10)

Il curioso caso di Benjamin Button by David Fincher( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nato nel giorno in cui finiva la prima guerra mondiale in una festante New Orleans, il destino di Benjamin Button non potrebbe essere più cupo: la madre è morta mettendolo al mondo e il padre, sconvolto dal suo aspetto mostruoso, lo abbandona sulle scale di un ospizio. Qui viene raccolto da una donna di colore che decide di allevarlo e lo fa visitare subito da un medico: gli vengono riscontrati tutti i problemi fisici di un ottantenne e si da per scontato che non avrà vita lunga. Invece Benjamin ringiovanisce di anno in anno e le sue condizioni fisiche migliorano progressivamente. All’età di 10 anni, mentre il suo aspetto è quello di una persona anziana, incontra Daisy che riconosce in lui il bambino che in effetti è e diventa la sua compagna di giochi. Qualche anno più tardi, annoiato dalla vita dell’ospizio e ansioso di fare nuove esperienze, trova lavoro su un rimorchiatore sul quale presterà servizio per diversi anni. Durante la seconda guerra mondiale si trova in Russia e la sua nave, passata sotto la marina militare, viene attaccata da un sottomarino tedesco; Benjamin è l’unico dell’equipaggio a salvarsi. Tornato a casa incontra nuovamente Daisy, astro emergente del balletto contemporaneo, e tenta di iniziare una relazione sentimentale ma l’ambizione di lei la porta ad allontanarsi. Intanto il padre di Benjamin, che negli anni ha seguito a distanza le avventure del figlio, essendo ormai in fin di vita gli confessa la verità sulla sua nascita e gli lascia in eredità la fiorente industria di bottoni di cui è proprietario. Benjamin però corre a Parigi dove in un ospedale è ricoverata Daisy a causa di un grave incidente che pone fine alla sua carriera di danzatrice. Dopo l’ennesimo rifiuto, Benjamin, che ormai ha l’aspetto di un uomo di circa 40 anni, fa ritorno a New Orleans. È ancora nell’ospizio che, qualche mese più tardi, incontra Daisy e finalmente sboccia l’amore. I due sanno di avere poco tempo a disposizione, visto il progressivo ringiovanimento del protagonista destinato a rendere impossibile la relazione, e vivono in maniera estremamente intensa i pochi anni che li vedono “coetanei”. Quando Daisy rimane incinta decidono di tenere la bambina anche se Benjamin si rende perfettamente conto che non potrà esserne il padre. Sarà proprio lui, per il primo compleanno della figlia, ad abbandonare tutto rendendosi irreperibile. Daisy si risposa e incontrerà Benjamin solo in vecchiaia: il protagonista è ormai un ragazzino di 12 anni affetto da demenza senile. Da quel momento Daisy passerà tutto il suo tempo in compagnia di Benjamin vedendolo ringiovanire sempre più fino al momento della morte che lo coglierà, neonato, tra le braccia della donna amata
