  1. A really great movie! I loved the story and the actors (Johnny!) but to my mind there are too much songs: characters are talking and they suddenly sing. It’s a little bit strange. However the atmosphere of the 19th century is awesome and the story is completely crazy: I love it! That’s Tim Burton’s movie 😉 !
