The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Yesterday, my friends and I were on our way to a cafe in Montreal to have breakfast before heading back to Jersey. When we reached the cafe, we found ourselves at a set of a Hollywood production. Turns out that this is a movie that will come out 2008 featuring Brad Pitt playing a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. The story starts at the beginning of the 20th century and goes all the way to our times. So this street was full of people looking like people used to look in the 1950s. I found that very cool. They blended in very well between the old buildings. One of them told me that they are actually shooting scenes that take place in Paris, but the producers seemed to have chosen Montreal, because it is not that busy. Here are two snapshots. The first one shows extras waiting for their action. The second one is a little rehearsal with moving cars and pedestrians. I whish I would have more time and the permission to take more pictures.

The second photo definitely gives the older vibe feeling... what a neat thing to witness... must have been a grand experience!

Yes. I actually ran through half the town to get my camera out of the trunk and skipped breakfast :-)
