curious

Greg and I just finished the second half of "the Curious Case of Benjamin Button" tonight. Yes, I know it doesn't have two halves but we started it a little late last night and couldn't keep our eyes open any longer to finish it, so we finished it tonight.

ANYWAY, for those of you who have seen the movie I have a question...

What is the connection/relationship between Benjamin and the clock maker? I just want to know WHO the clockmaker was in relationship to him. I had a hard time understanding all the begining stuff because we couldn't really hear it all that well. So, that's my question. If you can help, please leave a comment.

It's been a while since I saw it (Seth took me to see it when it was still in theaters)... but if I remember correctly, I think the only connection was that he was born at the same time (or very soon after) the clock was installed and started running backwards, hence his aging backwards. I don't think he was actually related to the clock maker.

Well I can't answer your question but just had to laugh because Billy and I did the exact same thing last weekend. We started watching the movie one night, fell asleep and had to finish it the next evening. I was also confused a lot because I couldn't see or hear what was going on.
