Ben X [2007]

"Ben:[voiceover] It's hard to explain. It's hard to explain myself. But I never tell lies. Everything I say is true, even when I don't say a thing."

As I was flipping from one channel to another, the sign on telly "Coming Up: Ben X" made me think, "Hmmm. Never heard." I was ready to punch the remote control's next button when my boyfriend said,"I've heard a lot of positive comments about that film." which took my attention. I checked IMDB [as usual] and found out that the film was given a 7.6 out of 10 star rating ~~~ not bad! As I continued reading some facts about the film on the site, I found out that Ben X won 6 awards and 1 nomination. By then, I was sold out to watch Ben X.

The language of the film was Flemish [Belgian Dutch] which irritated me for awhile since I needed to turn on the Swedish subtitle just to understand the entirety of the film. I got used to the setup after a few minutes though.

Plot summary for Ben X [quoted from IMDB]:

"Ben is different. His life is a universe to itself, where he plays his favorite on line computer game Archlord avidly, trying hard to train himself for the real world he lives in. The harsh world of a technical school is for him a daily kind of hell. As the horror of being a daily subject to bullying grows, Ben devises a plan. Then Scarlite comes into his life, the girl he has met in his on-line game. That wasn't part of the plan... Written by Peter Bouckaert"

Bex X Trailer in HD:
Ben X is utterly painful to watch. My boyfriend has walked out a few times in the middle of excruciating scenes as he can't really take some of them. Me, on the other hand, has almost turned off the telly as my heart's been torn into tiny pieces. I've cried and wept as I've watch Ben's difficult encounters in life.

If you are looking for a good film to watch that will definitely touch your heart and soul, Ben X is what you are looking for. Highly recommended!

Ben X - The movie that goes straight to the heart!
