I love Edward Scissorhands

It is a beautiful movie. It is like a fairy tale, but one that is about how people judge each other and don't trust someone who is different.

Many classes in America show this film to students and have them analyze it and write papers about it.

I showed it to my students last year as an example of genre – fairy tale and gothic fiction. 

He is too beautiful and too pure (innocent) to exist in the ugly world that we do.

The end is so sad. Even just thinking about it makes me tear up (get watery eyes!).

There is a play version (on stage) of the film now. It uses dance as well as acting and dialogue to tell the story.

It has played in the UK, and is coming to New York soon.

I would really like to see this play!

If you like Edward Scissorhands you might want to watch another fantasy movie by Tim Burton called Big Fish. Terry Gilliam's movies might also interest you, Brasil and Baron Munchausen. He has a new movie as well, but don't remember what it is called.

I am not very unussual, so I can say that I love Johnny Depp too. First I had watched " Pirates of the Carribean" and then "Edward…". But it is a fantastic film, I think. I can't understand everything for example why they had to separate from themselves, may be you can explain me?

ah,I see.Cz that is the cruelity of reality~if they stayed together,maybe it would turn out to be a superficial one~the reality world has no space for a so pure man like Edward~~and that is the reason why the movie is a success!

hallo to everyone!

Nice to see so many people fond of this film, course i enjoyed it greately. I want to add to all positive responses that the film was directed brilliantly. I mean that on my opinion it's one of the best films produced by Tim Barton, besides it was his fairy tale,i mean he wrote it and then made a film. Smile
