Happy (belated) birthday, Edward!


Enchanting, poetic, plenty of grace. Touching. Edward Scissorhands is this and much more.

December 7 of 25 years ago the premiere for this movie that would have been classified after a while like one of the most impressive classics of the American cinema.

The first collaboration of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp.

Edward, a personal idea and inspiration of a teenager called.. Tim Burton.

A gothic movie, not too many dialogues, Edward was a creature invented by an old inventor, but the poor man died before to complete him and so Edward plenty of grace and touched by a lot of kindness remained in a sort of real cage: his hands not real hands, but scissors, able to cut, able to hurt other people like also, accidentally, himself.

The world different from Edward.

Edward 1 Edward 3

The differences with the other ones, common mortals, to him reason for a profound melancholy and at the same time the desire of being appreciated for who he was.

One of the most wonderful. beautiful and poetic role portrayed by Johnny Depp.

Melancholic Edward, his destiny signed by these scissors, the desire of being someone else and not just a weird creature contributed to create a myth and the movie became a legend.

The thematic, the one of a person not understood well in the society,  convinced the team of creatives involved in the project of Edward Scissorhands at designing the neighborhood, cars and all the rest as seeing through Edward’s eyes.
