What can I really say about this film. I've watched it so many times it's up there as one of my favourites, the contrast between the two different "worlds" is typical in Tim Burton films. This film however is just a typical "beauty and the beast" story where the leading lady at first doesnt like the main character because of the way he looks but learns to love him anyway. It's a beautiful story told in quite a strange way, the pastel colours of the houses with matching cars and even their clothes are from a similar palet.
These are some pictures of the stage production of Edward Scissorhands, I watched it about a year ago in london. I thought I'd add it in because it was strange how well it carried the story within the film and the set were quite similar. The stage version had no words within it at all it was purely dancing but gave the same magical feel to it and the same romance. The houses on stage had the same pastel colours and the feel as the film with the mayjor contrast of the castle on the hill which Edward lives in. It was portrayed very well on stage with snow falling on the audience at the end that just brung the audience into the story.
