Edward Scissorhands, by Tim Burton

We all know Tim Burton for his fabulous movie, such as Alice in Wonderland, Beetlejuice or Nightmare Before Christmas. But today, I going to talk about this movie : Edward Scissorhands. Edward Scissorhands is an american romantic dark fantasy movie that came out in 1990. The story was written by Tim Burton and Caroline Thompson. This movie received numerous awards at the Academy Awards, British Academy Film Awards and Saturn Awards.

Here’s the beautiful story

Edward is a young men created by an inventor, but unfortunately unfinished. That’s why the poor has scissor for hands. The inventor died of a heart attack just before he was about to give real hands to Edward. He’s gather by the Boggs family and fall in love with their daughter Kim, a beautiful blond girl. All the citizens of the town welcome him warmly before a lot of problems arrives in Edward’s life, and became a nightmare for him.

This movie is particularly affecting, first, because of Edward’s situation. We feel pity and compassion for him. He’s all alone and at the beginning, Kim doesn’t like him so much. We are glad to see him accepted from the citizens but he’s rashly surrounded by problems and accused guilty from a crime who is not in question. Also, the face of Edward : His white face and dark eyes, his tousled dark hair and finally his clothes. On the face of it, we could be afraid but in fact, we are sad of his situation. According to me, Edwards as the perfect physic to make feel  someone touching. We want the best for him in his life, and all he has is problems. More, there’s nothing more kind and attaching than him. He’s in love with a girl that we think is impossible for him to get her, he wants to help people around him and nobody help him.

Iin my opinion, there’s a real message in this film. A handicap must no destroy the life of anybody. We have to accepts him and understand him, and absolutely help him. Iif someone wants the best for you, you have to think the same.
