Cinema 1 - The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button
(PG - some sexual references) (166 minutes)

"I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins "The Curious  Case of Benjamin Button," adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott  Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages  backwards: a man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We  follow his story, set in New Orleans from the end of World War I in  1918, into the 21st century, following his journey that is as unusual  as any man's life can be. Directed by David Fincher and starring Brad  Pitt and Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson, Tilda Swinton, Jason  Flemyng, Elias Koteas and Julia Ormond, "Benjamin Button," is a grand  tale of a not-so-ordinary man and the people and places he discovers  along the way, the loves he finds, the joys of life and the sadness  of death, and what lasts beyond time. Winner of 3 Oscar Awards: Best  Visual Effects, Best Makeup, and Best Art Direction.


Cinema 2 - Suspect X
(PG) (130 minutes)

A male body is discovered. He is strangled to death where his face  pulverized beyond recognition and fingers burned to a crisp. Utsumi  Kaoru (played by Shibasaki Kuo) is assigned to the case. The police  face great difficulty in cracking the case. Thus, she seeks advice  from brilliant physicist Yukawa Manabu (played by Fukuyama Masaharu),  aka Detective Galileo.

After analyzing the case, Yukawa suspects that the true genius behind  everything is Ishigami Tetsuya (played by Tsutsumi Shinichi), the  neighbor of victim's ex-wife. Ishigami happens to be Yukawa's college  friend whom he regards as a true mathematics genius.

Elaborate bluffs, false testimonials, loopholes in logic - all begin  to appear in Detective Galileo's way as if intentionally placed as a  challenge by someone with mathematical brilliance.
